wine spectator 92 pts"Ripe and open-textured, with luscious acidity supporting the lively dark fruit and cooking spice flavors. Creamy midpalate, with chocolate and mocha notes on the finish. Drink now through 2024. - Kim MARKUS”

2018 Argot Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue - 95 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A more limited production cuvée, the 2018 Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue is a big, ripe, sexy beast of a Pinot Noir delivering loads of black cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with plenty of spring flowers, sappy herb, and forest-like nuances. Full-bodied, it has a hedonistic, sweetly fruited style, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It doesn’t pull any punches yet stays balanced, textured, and a joy to drink. It should keep for 5-7 years or so.”

2019 Argot Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue - 93 PTS - WS

wine spectator 93 pts"Rich, offering steeped and mulled cherry and plum fruit flavors wrapped with licorice and singed wood notes. The fruit holds sway on the finish where hints of wood spice and sweet toast permeate. For fans of the bigger style. Drink now through 2027. 305 cases made. - JM”

2019 Argot Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Always a richer, more powerful Pinot, the 2019 Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue is no exception and gives up a medium ruby hue as well as a big nose of spiced red and black fruits, cola, forest floor, sassafras, and dried orange. Complex, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it has good acidity and balance, yet there's no reason to hold off, as it's drinking beautifully today.”
