Argyle Brut 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
The 2016 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was generous yet refined, highlighting the alluring precision the region has to offer. Knudsen Vineyard, in the protected Dundee Hills, brings supple depth and elegance, while Spirit Hill Vineyard, in the windy confines of the Eola-Amity Hills, brings tension and mineral backbone. Fresh seashore, white peach, and toasted brioche are framed around a creamy center and long, graceful finish.
The blend in 2016 is quite different from the previous vintage, reversing the roles of the Pinot Noir (35%) and Chardonnay (55%), with a splash of Pinot Meunier as before. It's young and fresh, with crisp apple fruit flavors in a compact, well-defined frame. There is clearly some aging potential, though where the flavors will go from here is anyone's guess.
