This is a crowning achievement for Vintage American Grower Sparkling Wine. Bottle fermented and aged on the yeast for ten years, Argyle ‘Extended Tirage’ Brut represents the culmination of our founding ambition to create wines that endure.

After a two year absence, Argyle Extended Tirage Brut returns! Being Pinot Noir-dominant and full malolactic-fermented in neutral barrels, the 2005 ET is driven more by structure and texture, while still retaining outstanding energy and endurance. Fruit mince spice, orange rind, and grilled peach are layered with almond, brioche, and soft supple creaminess. The energy continues through the long, driving finish, embraced by gentle minerality and tension.

Conducere [latin]: to lead, draw or bring together. At Argyle, our history is alive in our wines. Argyle Conducere is a toast to the house where our wines have been made since 1987, and a call to community to make this place a house of your own. Here's to our house and all those who have contributed to bringing our history to life.

In a cool late year like 2011, we decided to throw the book at Mother Nature and experiment with something new. Break all the rules. The Conducere was born of late-ripening, low-elevation Stoller Vineyard Chardonnay, and high elevation Knudsen Vineyard Chardonnay. While only picked 4 days apart, each Chardonnay brings unique textural component to the wine. Stoller, picked on the 25th of October, brings richness and creamy power, while the Knudsen, picked the 29th of October, lays down a firm backbone to carry the fleshy Stoller base. In addition to being picked a bit riper, the Stoller was put completely through malolactic fermentation, which further enhances the creamy center, while the Knudsen was kept lean and mean to help focus the rich core of the Conducere.

By shifting with Mother Nature, we have turned what would have been a bony, lean still wine Chardonnay into our most opulent style of Blanc de Blancs. Fruit forward, showing hints of nectarine and lychee. Subtle acidity balances with slate minerality and backed with lightly toasted pistachio and honeydew melon. Throw in the clear glass and zero dosage, and you will likely never see a Sparkling Wine like this again here at Argyle. Get it while you can!

Convey a sense of our place in the Willamette Valley. It seems like a simple mission. Knusden Vineyard Brut approaches the task with a focus on Pinot Noir from one of Oregon's most historic vineyard sites to cast its richest, most extravagant expression in Sparkling Wine like no other winery can.

Planted in 1974, the traditional backbone Pinot Noir of the Knudsen Vineyard Brut provides understated aromas of apple, plum and nougat which opens into a creamy, lees aged mouthfeel. Even cooler and later than the 2010 vintage, the 2011 growing season provides taut acidy, mineral depth, and unwavering length. Young and tightly wound, the red cherry and rose petal Pinot Noir character will continue to emerge with cellaring.

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.

We thought 2010 was a late growing season... in 2011 we picked Julia Lee's Block a full 10 days later than 2010 on October 28th! At 900 ft. elevation, needless to say, we had plenty of acid in 2011. As such, we had to carefully tease out more texture and depth in a year like this. Complete barrel fermentation and full lees aging was a must, as well as an increased amount of malolactic fermentation - 25% to be precise. Going into the bottle, I still remember it being a racy little devil, but time on yeast has always had the last laugh. After popping our first bottle for the dosage trial, we were blown away at the depth and length it had developed on the lees. This is serious Blanc de Blancs. Allspice, Marcona almond, and fleshy pear meld with a rich, creamy core all persisting against wet, mineral length.

At the top of Knudsen Vineyards, 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. 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.

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."

In a cool, late year like 2011, Pinot Noir from the high elevations were not quite powerful enough for proper still wine. After much debate and deliberation, we rode Mother Nature's wave and decided to sparkle some of our best Knudsen Vineyard still wine Pinot Noir to make this year's 2011 Black Brut. Bringing tightly wound, yet focused acidity from the elevated hillside, the 2011 Black Brut is cool and elegant, while being both delicately red and black cherry. Weaving within the fruit and subtle baking 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.

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.

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

Here is a wine that speaks to the duality of richness with elegance. On the nose, you have baked pear tart with hints of vanilla icing sugar, kumquats, and white flowers. What happens on the palette is expansive and mouth-filling with flavors that express Pinot Noir side of sparkling - Bosc pear, slightly under-ripe red plum, and Macintosh apple. These fruit flavors are melded with notes of baklava, challah bread, and ginger root and finish on a clean, balanced acid-tinged mineral note. An exceptional example of a single-vineyard grower sparkling wine.

2008 was not only a glorious year for still wines, it turns out that it was a pretty darn special year for sparkling as well. This year’s Blanc de Blancs is a brilliant pale straw color with a beautifully fine mousse and delicate aromas of white flowers, sugar cookies, quince, and rock melon. In the mouth, it comes alive with concentrated ripe flavours of sweet pear, choux pastry and melon all balanced on a pure backbone of mineral acidity. This wine defines the fuller side of Blanc de Blancs in its exactitude and rich purity.
