Meh. Zippy acid and then nothing. Falls really flat.

Basic Oregon Pinot Noir. Drinkable but not in any way worth seeking out. Overpriced. At least it is not over oaked or over extracted

Very light wine, but pretty. Eminently drinkable, great food wine. Will definitely be buying more of this.

Earthy cherry nose and palate with good acid. Burgundian in style. Very restrained for an exuberant vintage. Solid but not super exciting. Slightly one dimensional.

Another wine tasted for the intention of finding the perfect wine for the holidays. Incredibly versatile. Perfect for salmon, stuffing, dark meat Turkey and pecan pie. Happy gobble day! - WINEBOW (425)

Subpar. Too little fruit for the alcohol (13.8), all you get is smoky sandalwood and the burn of ethanol

Sunday night's wine is the 2015 Argyle Grower Series Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley Oregon.

The nose has cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, vanilla, sassafrass and earth.

On the palate there is cherry, red raspberry, cranberry, cola, oak and a nice earthy note.

This is a light to medium bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium firm tannins that leads to medium finish. An easy drinker that would go well with a burger, Chinese or a pizza. Have a great weekend and let's make it a safe eventful one. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷
