Winemaker Notes

This is an impressive wine from a warm and complex vintage. The aroma is deep and concentrated with distinct black cherry extract, ripe plum, a hint of cedar smoke, and a dark chocolate spiciness. The flavor and mouth-feel are voluptuous and satiny. The texture is juicy all the way through to a very long lasting sweetness with mild tannin afterthought. Amazing with chocolate covered hazelnuts, chateaubriand and roasted turkey.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Smooth and round, beautifully polished, plush and generous with its spicy, floral nuances to the dark berry, cherry and tar flavors, sailing through the long finish.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Medium red. Sweet red and dark berries on the nose, with musky notes of underbrush, tobacco and roasted coffee. Big and broad, with very concentrated sweet raspberry and strawberry liqueur flavors showing impressive depth and richness along with striking purity. Lush, velvety and long on the back end, finishing on pure, precise strawberry and raspberry notes.

Argyle
Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon.... View More

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
