Spirithouse Pinot Noir is Argyle's mastery of power and grace. Contemplative and haunting, it is Argyle's crowning achievement for cool-climate Pinot Noir from Oregon's Willamette Valley.

Entirely from Knudsen Vineyard, 2014 Spirithouse Pinot Noir displays the delicacy and refinement of the Dundee Hills while still bringing impressive depth and texture. Fresh red cherry, cranberry and the waft of late summer is brought together with warm baking spices and faint rooibos tea. The beautifully linear and chiseled acidity is embraced with silky, ethereal tannin leading to a long, generous 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.

Nuthouse Pinot Noir is the master at play. Its raison d'être is to command your attention & cheer you on. Nuthouse is an enduring, provocative style of American Pinot Noir that is a singular expression of this place in Oregon's Willamette Valley.

In years like 2013, it pays dividends to have a warm, low-elevation growing site like we have in our Lone Star Vineyard. Southeast facing, at 250-400 ft. elevation, the fruit at Lone Star captures all of the early morning sunshine peaking up over the Cascades, leading to elegantly-concentrated Pinot Noir. On September 18th, facing the impending rain forecast, we dropped the hammer and initiated a concerted 2-day picking of our best blocks of Lone Star Pinot Noir fruit. The decision paid off, as the wine is now showing bright raspberry, spicy floral and black tea flavors, all woven into a rich, yet energetic frame. A mild grip of tannins is carried through a long, savory finish.

There's a house on a high hill in Dundee where Holstein roams, our founding farmer Allen Holstein - that is. Cowhouse Pinot Noir is about our good-humored origins and pays tribute to the steady hand with 30 years of growing world class Pinot Noir in the Dundee Hills - the yeart of the Willamette Valley.

The ripe 2014 Cowhouse Pinot Noir from Holstein Vineyard has the full expression of Pinot Noir from the high elevation land in the Dundee Hills, the heart of Oregon Wine Country. Beneath the elegant palate of soft silk and the sensuous, lingering finish are nuanced layers best left for your own interpretation.

Warmer than the previous vintage, and without the distraction of late September rains, the 2014 vintage has brought elegantly ripe flavors. Black cherry,plum, anise, and black pepper are framed in its dense core, while the finely grained 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% was new.

With almost 30 years of growing world class Pinot Noir under our belts, we have the experience to recognize a new expression of the Oregon-famous varietal when it reveals itself. We've captured what's new with our second single vineyard release from our Spirit Hill Vineyard.

At 700 to 800 feet in elevation and awash with persistent drying winds, Spirit Hill Vineyard is always the last Pinot Noir to be picked and brought into the winery.

Warmer than the previous vintage, and without the distraction of late September rains, the 2014 vintage has brought elegantly ripe flavors.

Ripe wild cherries in chili chocolate sauce, juniper, and deep composted earth frame its tight core, while the firm yet folded tannins persist through its long, vibrant 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% was new.

Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir is classic Oregon. Exacting in its fruit selection from the Willamette Valley's most luxurious vineyard sites, Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir has classic 'silky texture' born of peak season ripeness, small batch handling and gentle aging in French oak for 16 months.

A laudable glimpse of the Willamette Valley's finest offerings, our Reserve Pinot Noir is truly a celebration of balance. All three of our vineyards are based in volcanic, red soils, contributing to the sweet cherry, redheart plum, and toasted, rich, earth nose. The tannins are firm, but rounded, an underlying minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish. While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture, which has been enhanced through cold soaking in small, 1.5-ton fermenters, along with aging 16 months in French oak barrels.

Our vineyards tell new stories each vintage. Our winemaking is informed through a conversation between sun & rain, warm days & cool nights. Argyle Pinot Noir celebrates this dialogue with a simplicity, purity of fruit & silky texture that rewards curiosity & inspires conversations of your own.

Argyle Pinot Noir is an honest representation of the Willamette Valley. Fermented entirely in small 1.5 ton lots and plunged by hand, Argyle Pinot Noir is blended for purity. The nose leans towards dark cherry, red raspberry and spicy earth, while the middle palate is lush and graceful. On the back end, the wine builds density and focus as the silky yet, subtly firm tannins build into the long, energetic finish.

The farmhouse, which served as our former tasting room has been haunted for more than 100 years. More muse than Spirit, the intriguing and intangible qualities of Spirithouse wines are enhanced by the continued presence of the pioneer woman who once lived here. The fruit is derived from a select block of high elevation densly planted vines at Knudsen Vineyards (Dundee Hills AVA) and produces our most powerful yet elegant 100% Pinot Noir wine.

This is a refined, sneaker of a wine! The aroma is bright with an appealing purity. Look for luscious red fruit, like raspberry and cherry made deeper by fresh earth, new leather, and a hint of black pepper spices. The flavor is pure and, dare I say it, “elitist”. The red fruits are fresh and ripe, fresh earth integrates with spicy, almost floral, flavors. The juicy center is signature Spirithouse. The wine is youthful now, but will “sneak up” on you with the power and richness I have come to expect from this wine.

Here’s a wine that will require some time to sit back and ponder over. The obvious notes on the nose of big juicy sweet Oregon blackberries and Rainier cherries have layers of summer cedar forest, strawberry rhubarb cobbler, and roses so deeply red they hurt adding aromatic complexities. Richness is exuded by this wine that has a palate full of berries fresh off the vine and exotic Asian spices, but with a graceful elegance that is anything but cumbersome. It is a rare and beautiful thing to find a Pinot Noir with this much power that still maintains the balance and finesse that defines the best that the varietal can be.
