WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Lithe, with a nice transparency to the polished texture and the tea leaf-accented cherry and herb flavors, sliding easily into a graceful finish. Drink now through 2017.
Winemakers Notes - Argyle Pinot Noir is honest and unmingled. The 2012 vintage for Pinot Noir made itself. Fermented in small lots, and blended for purity, this year's blend croons of ripe, red raspberry, morello cherry and a hint of backwoods spice. No other word can describe the palate but lush. Gentle, slightly firm tannin beneath, the acid sings true and long. Enjoy early, or sit on it a few years for enhanced nuance.
