Winemaker Notes

Entirely from their Lone Star Vineyard, the 2016 Nuthouse Pinot Noir exhibits the richness and power of the Eola-Amity Hills while still retaining fresh fruit and vibrant acidity. Black raspberry, rose petal, blood orange, and allspice are framed its dense core, while the finely woven tannins persist through its long, creamy finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Sleek and elegant, with polished raspberry, orange peel and spiced cinnamon flavors that glide on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2023.
JS 91
James Suckling

There’s a pleasingly complex feel to the nose with a wealth of leafy and brambly cherries. The palate is supple and soft with ripe, cascading tannins, delivering generosity and immediate appeal. Drink now. Screw cap.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby, the 2016 Pinot Noir Nuthouse has a core of pomegranate, rhubarb and cherry cola with accents of cinnamon, underbrush and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate offers earth-tinged fruits with a firm, grainy frame and long, fresh, flavorful finish. Well done.

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
