2018 Giving Tree Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our inaugural bottling of this vineyard, we are continually learning about the great landscapes of the Willamette Valley. Located in the foothills of the Coast Range, west-facing, and in marine sedimentary Bellpine soil, this vineyard is entirely new to everything that we've done here at Argyle. The fruit moves from red to dark, with subtle spice and faint floral woven into its firm, yet polished backbone. After fermentation and gentle pressing, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.
