Wine Advocate 87 points - Sourced largely from Lone Start Vineyard but with contributions from Knudsen and Spirit Hill, the Argyle 2011 Pinot Noir Reserve displays sweetly ripe cherry and red raspberry with a confitured aspect rare in this vintage. Smoky black tea adds some interest. For all of its up-front sweetness, this texturally spare Pinot then finishes with brash juiciness accompanied by slightly detached tartness and lemon rind piquancy such as characterize so many of its vintage companions. I imagine it will drink well through 2015, and perhaps it will some gain polish and further complexity. (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator rating 91 points: "Bright and juicy,with pretty black cherry and currant flavors on a supple frame, finishing with an edge of exotic spices. Nicely done all around. Drink now through 2008. 1,879 cases made. (HS)"

Wine maker notes
How can this wine be so Big yet exhibit so much complexity and generosity? Aromas of wild black fruits like our dried Himilayan blackberries predominate but are also complex by ample portions chocolate covered cherries and rare spices, forest soil, toasted grain, and sweet floral essences. The flavor is ripe, silky black raspberry and earthy. Trademark silky and sweet impressions help mask the firm, ample tannins. Fruit flavors dominate the long, fresh finish, with a touch of toasted oak and cedar essences framing the fruit.
