2011 Club Series Pinot Noir

Exclusive to Argyle Wine Club Members

The cool growing season of 2011 made growing high elevation Pinot Noir quite the challenge. In such cooler seasons we like to convert still wine blocks into sparkling blocks so we don't have to compromise on quality. We take what mother nature gives us. However, one can't turn an entire vineyard, namely Knudsen Vineyard, ALL into sparkling wine. There are a few special spots on the lower part of the hill that reward patience. Picked on October 28th, these small parcels dedicated to premium red wine do not disappoint. Pomegranate and black cherry, delicate and silky. Faint pipe tobacco. Fine grain nuance one can only find in such a long-hanging growing season. This one’s worth laying down for extended cellaring.
Cart Total:  $0.00



VINEYARD Knudsen Vineyards

2011 was the coolest growing season since 1954, including a greatly truncated Indian summer. The first 15 days of October brought some form of cold and precipitation.

October 17-27 saved the day with mostly dry days and one day reached a high of 76. This late in the season, the vines tend to really respond to sun and heat. The wines turned out beautiful, perfumed, and have surprising depth and finish to them. Late season ripening seems to produce wine with leap out of the glass aromatics. This was one of the most challenging vintages ever.

We pressed off the last red wine on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving! Imagine an exhausted, motley, yet grateful harvest crew gathered around the smoked turkey on Thursday. This Thanksgiving was truly something to be grateful for.
