A selection of barrels displaying the magnificence of Sonoma County Pinot Noir — that specific balance of opulent fruit, inherent spice, and earthen notes. The 2021 Argot Bastard Tongue Cuvee brings forth a significant emphasis on Sonoma’s oldest heritage selection, the Swan Clone.
Inheriting an unbroken string of success — dating back to 2011 — the 2021 “Bastard Tongue” arrives fully formed and ready to impress. Always a blend from multiple “Grand-Cru” Pinot Noir vineyards, this iteration of “BT” was selected from three distinct sites, each making its own unique contribution of Sonoma County terroir to the wine’s character. Exploding forth on a tidal wave of high-toned, intense red and black fruits, this is a Pinot Noir that no stemware can contain. The palate’s profound depth is balanced by an inherent freshness, allowing the wine to crackle with brambly energy, while sustained by bass notes of underbrush, black tea, pie spice, and baker’s chocolate. A formidable rendition of “Bastard Tongue”, and a deserving successor to its 97-Point rated predecessor.

TWI (Lisa Perotti-Brown MW) 97 POINTS: “The 2021 Pinot Noir Bastard Tongue is pale to medium ruby-purple in color. It swans out of the glass with showy notes of kirsch, juicy raspberries, and fresh cranberries with hints of lavender, iris, iron ore, and mossy tree bark. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with bright, energetic black and red berry flavors, giving off a firework display of mineral and floral accents, supported by seamless freshness and a firm, fine-grained texture, finishing long, long, long. This is simply stunning.”
FMW 97 Points: “This Bastard Tongue is riveting, and reminds me of amazing Grand Cru Burgundies. This wine is striking, bursting from the glass with aromas of wild berries, grilled game, dark chocolate, cinnamon and violets. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, lush and yet elegant, with a bottomless core of fruit, rich but supple structuring tannins, and a long, muscular finish. This wine is the rock star of Sonoma County Pinot Noir that delivers the goods. Drink it any time over the coming 8-10 years.”
