2019 Giving Tree Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our second bottling of this vineyard, we are continually learning about our newest site in 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 before at Argyle. The fruit moves from red to dark, with baking spice and delicate flowers 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.
