Argyle Willamette Valley Brut 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Asian pear aromas on the bouquet
Medium bodied on the palate with fairly substantial bubbles
Apple and vanilla with yeast notes on the finish
Argyle has a strong track record of producing high quality sparkling wine. This is a vintage Brut from 2007 that's drinking beautifully right now. Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, it shows a nice fruity profile that's bright, lively, and with substance.
For an all-American bubbly, in this case from Oregon, you can't go wrong here. Well made, priced around $20, and vintage- it's easy to recommend. Raise a glass!
