Nuthouse Wines


Nuthouse Wines

Nuthouse Wines are built on Argyle’s history as a Grower First. With the conviction from the outset to make benchmark wines in Oregon, Argyle’s Nuthouse wines are intended to be provocative, singular expressions of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling born of a dutiful kinship with the greatest wines from the Old World.



Farmed and sourced entirely from our Lone Star vineyard, 2012 brings us our first ever Nuthouse Riesling! After 10 years of growing Riesling on this particular plot of land, we are beginning to learn the intricacies of what it means to make Eola-Amity Hills Riesling. 85% of the blend was fermented in stainless steel to retain laser-sharp freshness and acidity. 15% of the blend was fermented in our oldest neutral oak barrels to enhance subtle texture, yet also maintain fresh fruit flavor. Both components were left on lees 9 months before blending and bottling. The nose is full of fleshy white peach, lilac, meyer lemon, and faint white pepper. The palate is sleek and graceful, a light plumpness lurking in the shadows, waiting to build increased depth with time. The ever complicated acid/mineral interplay keeps the finish sailing on and on. Just a young pup, all the hallmarks of true ageable Riesling are here. Break out the Bibimbap!

Nuthouse Chardonnay is all about the interplay of savory texture and mineral edge. There is a satisfying and long lasting richness that is hard to define in words. A chord which travels from the back of the palate, through the spine and into the crust of the volcanic soil of the Willamette Valley. Fresh cut wheat, lemon sabayon, crêpes suzette, and delicate flake pastry. There is a degree of convection, the concerted, collective movement of groups or aggregates of molecules within this chardonnay, one may say the third dimension. It brings dreams of char-grilled crustaceans and blackened squid.100% barrel fermented.

2012 Nuthouse Pinot Noir comes from the low-elevation, warm, southeastern slope of our Lone Star Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Brilliantly garnet in color, the aromas are initially delicate and ethereal, hinting at fresh rose petal and red earth. As it opens up, more complex aromas emerge of dark chocolate, anise, and wild cherries. The mid palate is deep and creamy, poised against firm tannins and long, savory acid. You'll want to drink it right out of the gate, as this 2012 vintage comes to you fully assembled, but don't sleep on aging this little beauty, as she's got many, many years to go in the bottle. Grilled venison loin with saffron white beans, almond romesco, and bone marrow toast.

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.
