Tis the Season for Sparkling: Argyle Wines

Just got back from a day of tasting in the Willamette Valley. Great day, tons of dramatic cloud breaks and hills and even snow up at some of the higher elevations. I promise to write up my recommendations from the trip soon. Here's a celebratory taste.

Our favorite Sparking of the Day:
Argyle 1999 Knudsen Vineyard Brut
A blend of 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay sourced from Knudsen Vineyards
Nose: Apples, notes of vanilla creme
Taste:This sparkling is rich with lovely bracing apple acidity and a creamy mid palate. Lovely persistent creamy finish
Other peoples scores:
Wine Spectator - 91 points , in case you didn't believe me;)
Buy it
at the tasting room : ($35) Less other places ~ $28
