Argyle 2000 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir ($16.99)
Clear ruby, typically light in color for a Pinot Noir. Fresh and complex, floral red fruit and "tomato skin" aromas. Juicy and fresh, light and crisp red-fruit flavors and appropriately tart acidity. Pleasant wine with plenty of Pinot character. US Importer: (Apr 5, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Pinot's fruit and earth go well with mushrooms, and this one makes an excellent marriage with pizza with mushrooms and goat cheese.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
