2010 Nuthouse Chardonnay Magnum (1.5L)

The 2010 Nuthouse Chardonnay embodies an old-world elegance. It pulls you in with complexity and nuance, with a nose of toasted hazelnuts, rock melon, and flinty gunpowder notes. The nose doesn’t quite prepare the drinker for the bright crispness of the palate, refreshing and clean. Flavors of quince, lemon custard, and a zest of minerality akin to wet limestone holds the acidity on the finish of the palate. Its this cool-climate acidity that makes this wine a perfect companion at the dinner table. While fresh and enticing now, this wine promises to build mid-palate richness with time in the bottle to yield a truly sublime experience.

2009 Nuthouse Pinot Noir Magnum (1.5L)

For those of you familiar with the Nuthouse style, you’ll know that on release these wines don’t always leap out of the glass, they need time in the bottle to open up aromatically. Not the case with the 2009 Nuthouse Pinot Noir! This wine is alive with aromas of darkest cherry, cloves and cinnamon. It is no different on the palate—almost explosive in its expression of sweet juicy marionberry, raspberry cordial, and black cherry cobbler framed in subtle oak tannins. Definitely a big wine, but a big wine with grace and elegance enough to lift you up and put a smile on your face.

2014 Nuthouse Riesling Magnum (1.5L)

Lone Star Vineyard has three separate blocks of Riesling totalling just under seven acres of fruit, which amounts to less than 2% of our overall farming. Winemaking and blending is all about creating options and tools, so we have taken these three tiny blocks and divided them up into both stainless steel and neutral oak barrel fermentations to give us more tools to play with. The stainless steel versions are left with a hint of residual sugar, which emphasize fresh, pure, round fruit, while the neutral oak barrels are taken bone dry to bring the dichotomic elements of both mineral edge and subtle, creamy texture. Left on original lees for 16 months, we have continued to push the boundaries of texture in cool climate Riesling. White peach, orange blossom, and silvery minerality dance with pulsing, vibraceous length. Break out the Pepito de Ternera!

2012 Argyle Brut Rosé Magnum (1.5L)

At the top of Knudsen Vineyards in the Dundee Hills, at 950 feet of elevation, is where you'll find our 2.5 acre planting of Pinot Meunier. We take advantage of the late ripening spot to retain bright, fresh acidity and mineral edge. The balance of the wine is equally blended between the aforementioned Knudsen Vineyard and our younger, but equally high elevation Spirit Hill Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. The color is bright, pale salmon pink, while its bouquet is full of rose petal, cherry kernel, and pomegranate. The barrel aging of the red wine component contributes to its savory complexity, while its delicate, creamy bead leads to a long textural finish.

2013 Argyle Vintage Brut Magnum (1.5L)

The 2013 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was pristine, showcasing the enticing generosity and definition the region has to offer. Being Pinot Noir dominant this year, the richness and rounded peach nature is enhanced through the complexity of honey, cherry kernel and lingering anise. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and focus to the finish.
