Argot 2014 'Estate Vineyard' Pinot Noir
94 Robert Parker
The Estate Vineyard is located across the road from some of Kistler's Pinot Noir vineyards. They have adopted a pedigree of farming, meticulous in style and similar to John Wetlaufer of Marcassin.
The Estate vineyard was specially chosen with particular attention given to rootstock planted, crop thinning and picking at optimum ripeness, resulting in a beautifully crafted Pinot Noir.
"This is a sexy, complex Pinot Noir with notes of forest floor, spring flowers, blackcurrant & black cherry. The wine is deep, medium to full-bodied, youthful and exuberant. This is impressive, and no doubt destined to fly under the radar, given the small production that this estate is not terribly well known." Robert Parker
