Argyle 2014 Vintage Brut
65% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier | Alc: 12.5% – Dry, Effervescent
Willamette Valley, Oregon
The 2014 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was pristine, showcasing the enticing generosity and focused definition the region has to offer. The pinot noir dominated blend provides impressive red-fruited dimension to the ripe pear, fig and roast hazelnut. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and concentration to the long finish.
“Vibrant and floral apple and cherry aromas lead to layered and lively cinnamon, fresh ginger and spice flavors that linger on the long finish. Drink now.” 91 Pts – Wine Spectator
“Production continues to climb on this widely available well-priced Oregon sparkling wine. A tawny straw color, it’s vibrant and fresh, with yeasty dough accents around pear fruit. The balance and concentration suggest it may be cellared for up to a decade, but it’s drinking quite well right now.” 90 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
