2007 Extended Tirage Brut

With the sparkling harvest lasting 3 weeks and drawn out into early October, the 2007 Extended Tirage Brut is bursting with crunchy acidity and well developed fruit flavors. Aged upon the lees for 10 years before disgorgement, the wine is impressive for its depth and creamy layers of texture. Grilled peach, fig, honey, and citrus zest are layered with the mature complexity of toast and roasted nuts, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2007 growing season was picture perfect up until the end of September. Not too cold, and not too hot, usually makes Argyle a very happy winemaker. 2007 sparkling fruit had an amazing expression of ripe fruit flavor masked behind especially high natural acidity. This wine is testament to 20 years of balancing our farming to meet Mother Nature’s slings and arrows. The grapes are hand picked into small baskets. The fruit was first chilled to 35 degrees F before gentle, whole fruit pressing to extract just the “heart of the grape” juice from the berries. After settling the cold juice over a period of several weeks; clear, fresh juice was fermented using one of Argyle’s proprietary yeasts. A judicious amount of barrel and malo-lactic fermentation was employed to help build creamier textures and mouth rewarding complexities. Bottle aged on the yeast for ten years, our Extended Tirage Brut is disgorged on demand to ensure its appealing freshness.

2015 Reserve Pinot Noir

An admirable glimpse of the Willamette Valley's finest offerings, our Reserve Pinot Noir is truly a celebration of balance. All three of our vineyards are based in volcanic, red soils, contributing to its red cherry, rose mallow, and grilled meats. The tannins are firm, but rounded, an underlying minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish. While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture, which has been enhanced through cold soaking in small, 1.5-ton fermenters, along with aging 16 months in French oak barrel.

2015 Nuthouse Pinot Noir

Entirely from Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Pinot Noir exhibits the opulence and power of the Eola-Amity Hills while still retaining fresh fruit and vibrant acidity. Wild cherry, marionberry, roast fennel, and black tea frame its dense core, while the firm tannins persist through its long, creamy finish. After fermentation and gentle pressing, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.

2015 Nuthouse Chardonnay

Entirely from the Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Chardonnay displays the richness and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, while still balancing along its fluid frame. Yellow peach, lemon pith, marzipan, and roast cashew flicker around dense, yet crystalline delicacy. Entirely barrel fermented, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 30% were new. The middle palate fills the mouth with weight and texture, while finishing with persistence and definition.
