Argyle Willamette Valley Brut 2007
90 points Wine Spectator: Tight, spicy and distinctive for the lemon meringue and spice overtones to green apple and toast flavors. Drink now. (12/15/10) 90 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2007 Brut displays a bouquet of brioche, pear, apple, and white peach. Crisp, balanced, and lengthy, this outstanding value is meant for drinking over the next several years. (Oct 2010)
One and a half glasses
Yet another winner from the Argyle team. Having spent time in the Champagne region of France I have learned a thing or two about sparkling wine. The 2007 Brut is a very fine sparkling wine, crisp and clean with an abundance of peach nuances, this sparkler is ready for a party now or NYE 2013!
External Reviews for Argyle Willamette Valley Brut
The 2007 Argyle Brut Rose is an artistic blend of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, both grown on the highest blocks of Knudsen Vineyards in the Dundee Hills of Oregon. The very first aromas are of raspberry, juicy anjou pear and hints of Tillamook strawberries. The tongue-tickling fizz introduces a clean, satisfying minerality with excellent balance and mild tannin. Essence of sun-warmed rose petals and pomegranate linger on the palate and evolve into sublime hints of cherry-currant and strawberry creme. Delicious on its own or paired with vegetarian fare, seafood, poultry, pizzas and any patisserie.
