Argyle Brut is always vintage-dated to capture what sparkles each year in the cool climate of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Argyle Vintage Brut is bottle-fermented, aged on-the-yeast and "disgorged on demand" in small batches to preserve vibrancy and freshness.

In the Willamette Valley, 2012 was a season of generosity, without sacrificing focus. In order to retain precision, 90% of the blend was fermented in stainless steel and only 10% fermented in neutral oak barrels, while none of the base wine parcels underwent malolactic fermentation. Yellow summer fruits, baked apple, and ginger spice up front, the mid-palate is creamy, concentrated and fleshy. The long finish is enlivened by mouth-filling volcanic structure and lively acidity.

Argyle Brut Rosé is magic-in-the-making. How else can we describe the storybook marriage of our most vibrant fruit? Argyle Brut Rosé weds rose petal aromas and delicate fruit flavors in an opulent structure renewing our vow to craft the very finest vintage Sparkling Wine.

At the top of Knudsen Vineyards in the Dundee Hills, at 950 feet of elevation, is where you'll find our 2.5 acre planting of Pinot Meunier. We take advantage of the late ripening spot to retain bright, fresh acidity and mineral edge. The balance of the wine is equally blended between the aforementioned Knudsen Vineyards and our younger, but equally high elevation, Spirit Hill Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. The color is bright, pale salmon pink, while its bouquet is full of rose petal, strawberry hull, and lemon zest. The barrel aging of the red wine component contributes to its savory complexity, while its delicate, creamy bead leads to a long textural finish.

Between 700-800 feet in elevation, north-facing and windy, the chardonnay from Spirit Hill Vineyard provides beautifully focused acidity and tension. The freshness of young Eola-Amity Hills chardonnay shines through with grapefruit and crisp cut apple accompanied by the complexity and depth of a warmer vintage building spicy, toasted notes. Neutral oak barrel fermentation and a small amount of malolactic fermentation build upon its pronounced structure, providing subtle cream and balance, while the driving acid continues through its long finish.

One singular varietal grown on one solitary block from one single vineyard in one sparkling vintage. Argyle Blanc de Blancs makes a singualr statement for American grower sparkling wine.

Planted in 1990, at nearly 850 feet of elevation, Julia Lee's Block provides elegant white summer fruits, citrus blossom, and roast cashew nut refined by layers of creamy concentration. While warmer than the previous two vintages, the early October picking provided ample concentration while still allowing the volcanic tension of the Dundee Hills to shine. Fermenting and aging in our oldest, neutral oak barrels allows for the middle palate to fully flesh out, while still building upon its taut, savory length.

Black Brut represents Argyle at play: a lighthearted take made of 100% high-elevation Willamette Valley fruit, with the simple mission to refresh, to celebrate, and to toast the "magic hour."

2012 in the Willamette Valley was a season of generosity, without sacrificing focus. Bringing tightly wound, yet focused acidity from the elevated hillsides, the 2012 Black Brut is rich and elegant, while being both delicately red and black cherry, supported by savoury fruit mince spice. The bead is direct, leading to a supple, long finish.

Argyle Brut is always vintage-dated to capture what sparkles each year in the cool climate of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Argyle Vintage Brut is bottle-fermented, aged on-the-yeast and "disgorged on demand" in small batches to preserve vibrancy and freshness.

The 2013 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was pristine, showcasing the enticing generosity and definition the region has to offer. Being Pinot Noir dominant this year, the richness and rounded peach nature is enhanced through the complexity of honey, cherry kernel and lingering anise. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and focus to the finish.

Another stunning Argyle Blanc de Blancs! This young beauty is composed entirely of high elevation, Dijon clone Chardonnay from the always remarkable, Knudsen Vineyard. Harvested on September 20th, these blocks were fermented entirely in neutral oak barrel to enhance creamy texture, while retaining abundant, fresh fruit flavor. Dry meadow blooms, poached apple, and roasted hazelnut orbit the delicate, finely-tuned mid palate. High-tension acidity and minerality throughout… the length is just plain sinful.

Made from fuller-bodied Pinot Noir and fine-structured Chardonnay from Knudsen Vineyard, this is simply an astounding (big!) bottle of our best bubbly.

Balance can invariably be found in the sparkling winemaking process, even in the warmer growing seasons such as 2009. Being Pinot Noir dominate, Knudsen Vineyard Brut has always been on the lusher end of the sparkling spectrum. The trick is to find the mineral backbone to carry it. As such, we made a few adjustments in our winemaking and blending to find that balance in 2009. To start with, the percentage of Pinot Noir is down to 75% and the Chardonnay is up to 25% from our traditional 80/20 split. Though 5% may seem like a small number, it's amazing what a little extra chardonnay can do for the wine's edginess. We also adjusted our fermentation regime, as the cuvée was fermented in 50% neutral oak and 50% stainless steel. The stainless component retains a freshness and vivacity, while the neutral oak barrels allow for rich, creamy texture. Violaceous, candied ginger, Jamaican allspice, and plum. Paying tribute to John Coltrane, this all leads to "rising harmonies to a level of blissful stability...” Enjoy.

We take advantage of the late ripening spot to retain bright, fresh acidity and mineral edge. This year's blend is 25% Pinot Meunier, 70% Pinot Noir, and 5% Chardonnay. Its color is bright, pale salmon pink, while its bouquet is full of rose petal, anise, and pink peppercorn. The barrel aging of the red wine component contributes to its savory complexity, while its delicate, creamy bead leads to a long textural finish only enhanced by food... salt-cod fritters and smoked piquillo aioli.
