At first sniff, the nose delivers black fruit aromas; ripe plum moving into prune and black cherries. There is a subtle red cedar and earthy component from the French oak. With air and time, the nose evolves into the spice associated with white pepper and the damp moss carpeting a coastal Oregon forest floor. I encourage you to follow its evolution in the glass, as it will be different every time you come back to it. This is the pleasure of excellent Pinot Noir. Once you put it in your mouth notice the rich, silky trademark Argyle texture. Enjoy the ripe cherry flavors, the impeccable balance and tightness of the structure. The finish is long with a rich sweetness that covers and at the same time complements the ample tannins and skin flavors.
