2005 Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

I have to say this is an exceptional Pinot Noir not quite as good as the torii mor or cowhouse for me but very very good. I ordered several bottles of Argyle 2006 Pinot Noir. We will see as if they are as good or better than the reserve.
Tasting Notes:
A nose of light blackberry, fruity and sugar. The color is a dark crimson edging to violet. The taste is crisp fruity meduim body, dry with a lasting finish. Very good with chicken and chocolate.

2006 Roxy Ann Pinot Gris

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Light straw colored. The nose is fruity, melon and grapefruitslightly citric to lemon. On first taste it is a dry slightly fruity wine with a nice long finish. Second taste shows more complexity and layers, fruit up front, into a firm middle to long finish. This light bodied wine has legs.

2006 Eyrie Vinyards Pinot Gris

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

The wine is golden to the color as honey.  The nose fresh with a hint a fruit but subdued.  I also pick up honey comb, flowers in the nose.  First taste it has crisp fruit flavor, pinot grape comes through clearly, also grapefruit and apple.  The finish while sharp, sweet and lasting, mellows but lasts for minutes.

2005 Trevor Jones Chardonnay

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Straw colored, fruity nose apples, touch of citric smell, lime/lemon. Fruity but not to sweet, very light body with a mild but lasting finish. Not a lot of layers of complexity here but a very straight forward chardonnay. Second taste on the next day, referigerated overnight. So a colder look at the same wine. Crisper because it is 36 degrees. Brings out a little dryer finish but stll very fruity and simple in terms of flavor. This wine says ďHello Iím a chardonnayĒ, nothing to denote if Iím Australian, Napa, French, etc. Needs more distinction. That said a fine drink for the price $15.00 and will be a hit at parties and your pcoket book.

2002 Griffin Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

A dark ruby and purple color, the nose is acidic with a herbal trace, slight blackberry and cherry.  The body is fine with a light character, a tart acidic fruit with mild tannins and long finish.  This is a fairly simple wine, it lacks the complexity of a finer cabernet but it quite drinkable and well recieved.  One pair very nicely with Lamb or Beef on the rare side.

2006 Kendall-Jackson Vitners Reserve

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Complex layering, Straw colored with melon and pear fruity flavor not over powering.  Long stong finish.  The Nose promises fruit but with enough acid to layer the flavors well.

2004 Marchesi de'Frescobaldi Nipozzano Riserva Chianti Rufina

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Good  solid Chianti nose you can smell the sangiovese grapes, begs to be sipped.  Tart with crisp long finish.  Tasting black cherrys, clenses the palate wonderful with food. Pasta, and meat.
 
Second Tasting Review:
The wine is a dark burgandy color, you canít see through it.  The nose is lighter than the color, crisp and light with cherry and flowers.  The taste and body run to full, Tart and acidic up front with a fruity and tannin filled long finish which is perhaps a touch too tart.  Very refreshing best with rich foods and heavy sauces.  I think this will be better about 2010

Color is light gold, appears light and fine.  The nose is complex citric lemon, grapeffruit and melon.  Taste is sweet and fruit filled up front then suddenly into a dry long acidic finish.  A French type Reisling rather than German.  The body is light and refreshing, Paula enjoyed this wine.
