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.

Critical Acclaim

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
The 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
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.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.
