Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
We don’t see an enormous amount of America wine on these shores but this special Pinot Noir from Oregon has an Australian connection, as Australian winemaker Brian Croser is one of the masterminds behind the operation. This is quite a robust style with dark fruit aromas as well as cherry and spice, it got a rich, earthy palate with notes of baked plum and cherry jam. It’s a lovely style of wine that would go well with lighter meat dishes including duck and turkey.
From a very cool growing season in the Willamette Valley comes a wonderful example of cool-climate grown Pinot Noir. The wine is alive on the nose with pie cherries, blackcaps, bergamot, and pipe tobacco. The mouth shows a lightness and grace with notes of pink peppercorn and polished leather that will keep you looking for another glass.
