Argyle ‘Nuthouse’ Pinot Noir 2021, Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon

Nuthouse Pinot Noir highlights the structured, yet refined character of the Eola-Amity Hills. Blended between our two sites, the core of the wine is Lone Star Vineyard, while being accented with a small amount of Spirit Hill Vineyard. Red Cherry, blueberry, and violet are buoyed by a dense core of fresh, vibrant acidity. The wine opens with sleekness and elegance and finishes with persistent, yet polished tannin. Cold soaking and fermenting in small, 1.5-ton fermenters enhances silky texture, while 10% whole cluster inclusion increases freshness, complexity, and length.
