Winemaker Notes

This wine exhibits a very deep, rich mousse. Initial aromas are of toasted baguette and cracked yeast, followed by fresh, ripe pears, honeysuckle blossoms and Spanish olives. The flavors are of pear and apple fruits, toasted yeast (from the barrel fermentation) and vanilla bean. It shows classic creamy, cool climate texture with a long, silky finish.

Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon.... View More
