Wine Review: This deep gold colored Sparkling Wine from Argyle in Oregon opens with active effervescence. The bouquet features ripe apple cider aromas. On the palate, it is medium bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is a juicy ripe apple and lime pith blend with notes of slate minerality and brioche. On the finish, it is dry and bright, and some toast and apple peel flavors appear. Overall, this Sparkler is very food friendly. The first thing that comes to mind is a chicken and ziti with broccoli. It would also pair well with a seafood risotto. Enjoy - Rick

Winemaker Notes: A warm and dry summer lead to a concentrated, yet vibrant 2018 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley. Knudsen Vineyard, protected in the deep volcanic soils of the Dundee Hills, brings supple depth and elegance, while Spirit Hill Vineyard, in the windy and rocky volcanic soils of the Eola-Amity Hills, brings energy and minerality. Orchard fruits, citrus peel, and toasted brioche are framed around a creamy center and long, graceful finish.
