The balance and integrity of the 2010 growing season is striking, especially when viewed through the prism of our 2010 Vintage Brut. Lemon peel, strawberry pith, fresh ciabatta dough. The center is downreaching and creamy. In the background, a faint, brine accent persists, remnant of freshly shucked Kumumoto oysters. Energetic acidity and length, there is a satisfying resolution about this cuvée, inspiring one to reach for another glass of the fizz!
This is a one-of-a-kind for American Sparkling Wine: 100% Argyle-grown Dijon Clone Chardonnay from a single block at the famed Knudsen Vineyard. A beautiful balance of creamy texture and pin-point minerality.
This is one-of-a-kind for American Sparkling Wine: 100% Dijon Clone Chardonnay from a single block in the famed Knudsen Vineyard - a very sophisticated and pure Blanc de Blancs. Notice aromas of citrus blossom, pear brioche, honey with a modicum of quince paste. The texture is creamy yet balanced on a elightful mineral edge. Fruit flavors of Meyer lemon and Anjou pear are framed with a lovely essence of hibiscus blossom. Penultimate balance abides. The finish is long lasting of pear, honey, and a touch of yeasty coconut.
Argyle was the first American sparkling wine house to specialize in exceptional, single-vineyard, Dijon Clone sparkling wines. Here’s a prime example. Made from fuller-bodied Pinot Noir and fine structured Chardonnay from Knudsen Vineyard, this is simply an astounding (big!) bottle of our best bubbly.

Made from fuller-bodied Pinot Noir and fine-structured Chardonnay from Knudsen Vineyard, this is simply an astounding (big!) bottle of our best bubbly. The aromas foretell a wine of concentration. Look for ripe red apple and yellow plum fruit blended with a hint of grapefruit citrus. The yeast complexity holds toasted baguette, jasmine petal, and subtle spice of coconut, sandalwood, and teak wood aromatics. The texture is rich and viscous. This is not for the faint of heart, part-time sparkling drinker, and the wine will smack down even the biggest red wine Pinot Noir!!
Mouthwatering is the first descriptor that comes to mind. A nose of sweet white peach, orange blossom, and cool nectarine with an overlay of toasted hazelnuts, clove and allspice that is so fresh, pure and clean that it just fires up those salivary glands. It opens with a full mouth feel with notes of baked peach and toasted hazelnuts and delicious notes of honey and hints of graham cracker. The palate finishes with clean oak spice notes and a stony minerality that quenches and excites. Pour me another glass of that Nuthouse!
This is our Classic “big furniture” Pinot Noir style derived from Lone Star Vineyard. Its melanite color is the first indicator of its boldness. The aroma is black cherry reduction fruit, black licorice, Earl Grey spices, and that luscious, fresh earth quality that says “Nuthouse”. The flavors are big, juicy black cherry and black plum pudding spices. The texture forms a rich, creamy center to this richly ripe Pinot Noir. The ripe plum and cherry fruit carry on and on. It is a wonderful thing to experience such powerful, exotic Pinot Noir yet wonder at its bright, balanced, mineral pinpoint touch twirling on the palate.
"How dark is the ocean, how deep is the sea?” The answer just might be in a glass of this Reserve Pinot Noir! This Pinot Noir has a seductive rich, super dark ruby-violet color. The aromas reflect one’s expectations of a cool year, dark colored Pinot. Aromas leap out the glass with black cherry, black cherry leather, and cedar, cedar smoke with a ripping portion of cinnamon spice, finishing off with a delicate hint of violet flower patch. Use of new oak was delicate, so the aromas are real time Pinot Noir! The flavor is a big juicy mouthful with firm tannin structure framed by velvet texture. The fruit is all about black cherry all the way to a very long finish. Spice of “far away lands” rounds out the complexity of this exciting, cool season vintage Pinot Noir.
