Argyle Spirithouse Pinot Noir 2007
Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon
The aromas of this bright ruby red wine leap out of the glass with lovely rose petal floral intensity blended
with cherry and raspberry red fruit. This wine speaks volumes for elegance right of the bat. The flavor is
full ripe red cherry fruit with surprising juicy centerdness. The bright fruit carries on long into the finish
leaving a fresh red fruited impression. Seldom do we get a vintage that displays the "nervosity" one can

The 2007 Pinot Noir Spirithouse is another step up the quality ladder. It is a weighty effort that has plenty of sweet, succulent fruit, lively acidity, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 2-3 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2019.
Zippy with acidity, offering raspberry and red cherry flavors that hint at lime as the sharp finish extends against a supple texture. Needs time. Best from 2010 through 2014.
