Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous
Vivid red. Deep-pitched aromas of fresh blackberry, cola, pungent flowers and sexy oak spices, backed by an exotic incense nuance. Pliant and expansive on the palate, offering intense, smoke-accented dark berry, cherry cola and candied licorice flavors complicated and energized by a suggestion of five-spice powder. Finishes sweet, pliant and extremely long, showing repeating spiciness and a late touch of bitter chocolate.
JS 94
James Suckling
This focused pinot noir shows aromas of jasmine, hibiscus and white lotus. Dried strawberries and plums, too. Medium body, firm and velvety tannins and a vibrant finish. I like the tannic tension here and the austerity. Delicious now but better in 2019.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Lean and vinous, this youthful pinot has a woodsy pine scent and a whiff of caramel oak adorning its strawberry accents. There’s a fine interplay between a kind of resinous savor and invigoratingly juicy fruit flavors, with a lasting coniferous impression, for something like rosemary roast chicken.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rose petal and dark plum aromas open to well-structured blackberry, sage and tea flavors that finish on a tart, tannic note. Drink now through 2023.

Argyle, Oregon
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.

Running north to south, adjacent to the Willamette River, the Eola-Amity Hills AVA has shallow and well-drained soils created from ancient lava flows (called Jory), marine sediments, rocks and alluvial deposits. These soils force vine roots to dig deep, producing small grapes with great concentration.

Like in the McMinnville sub-AVA, cold Pacific air streams in via the Van Duzer Corridor and assists the maintenance of higher acidity in its grapes. This great concentration, combined with marked acidity, give the Eola-Amity Hills wines—namely Pinot noir—their distinct character. While the region covers 40,000 acres, no more than 1,400 acres are covered in vine.
