Winemaker's Notes:

Number 25 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007!

"A stunner. Still fresh after 10 years. Pear, apple and orange marmalade flavors weave through a delicate structure and a flavor profile with distinct toastiness. It's the freshness that makes this elegant sparkler special. Drink now."
-Wine Spectator

About Argyle:

Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon. The Argyle wines represented on this list include sparkling wine, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, truly making Argyle one of the finest practitioners of the craft of elegant, long-lived winegrowing.
