Oregon may be known for Pinot Noir and Argyle is a great producer of pinot and sparkling wines. However, on our last visit to their tasting room, I fell in love with the Argyle 2003 Reserve Merlot. Juicy fruit, great balance and nice touch of pepper. Delicious Merlot. WS rated this wine a 90.
I'm picking up the 2004 Argyle Reserve Merlot ($30) this year. It sounds like a winner from the winemaker's description of the 2004 vintage. Looks to be even better than the 2003 vintage.
