Winemaker Notes

What were you up to in the year 2000? It proved to be one of the most fascinating vintages in Oregon. If you've "socked" my Nuthouse chardonnay and Prestige level Pinot Noirs away in the cellar, you are one of the very lucky ones. I love how complex 10 years on yeast sparkling can get. The aromas include a revolving sense of red plum- apple pie, ripe pear fruit, blossom honey, graham cracker yeastiness, and dare I say exotic mango-like creaminess. We could go on and on about how many wine descriptors there are for this great wine. I'll donate a few words here and look forward to hearing about yours. I got beautiful ripe pear and mango-smoothie fruit and creaminess that wrapped itself around an amazing mineral acidity. The beginning, middle, and finish are a cornucopia of fruit, richness of mouth-feel that we've come to expect out of this great wine offering. If prodded, one can find mango-apricot-pear (Nashi and Anjou), apple (red and yellow ones, not green ones)-crabapple fruit hints. The yeast age is just right, like flakey brioche aromas spritzing through the rich fruit flavor of this fine fizz.

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Refined and elegant, delivering beautifully intense layers of pear, caramel, spice and whole-grain toast that mingle seamlessly as the finish rolls on and on. The length is truly impressive, and the deftness of the balance makes this special.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000 Extended Tirage is made up of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir. Light gold in color, it displays more complex aromas and flavors with an attractive minerality added to the mix. Mouth-filling, creamy textured, and long, this pleasure-bent bubbly is meant for drinking over the next 3-4 years

Argyle Lone Star Vineyard Winery Image

Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon. The Argyle wines represented on this list include sparkling wine, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, truly making Argyle one of the finest practitioners of the craft of elegant, long-lived winegrowing.

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
