This Spirithouse has that sort of multi-layered, ethereal, supernatural quality that lives up to its name. If a wine can be described as a feeling, imagine the feel of black velvet on a Southern veranda, taking in the still night air of a full-mooned midnight in something like “the garden of good and evil”. This Spirithouse Pinot Noir congers up amazing layers of scent, feeling, and contemplation. To help guide you, look for aromas of violets in bloom, plum cobbler, dark chocolate blended with black pepper spice, Corsican leather, and vanilla graham cracker. The flavor is super juicy right through with a seamless transition from blackberry/plum fruit to red and black Subcontinental spices leading gently into a blend with a long, long finish.
Argyle Wine Reviews & Accolades
"This is considered best of the range of pinot noirs produced by Argyle, a renowned maker based in Oregon, the foremost region for this variety in the US. Full-bodied, this shows cinnamon and spice on the funky nose while the palate is rich, powerful and balanced by crisp acid. Seductive." - Jeff Collerson, The Daily Telegraph - June 2009.
