2001 Argyle "Extended Tirage" Willamette Valley Brut

SKU #1081995 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2001 Brut Extended Tirage is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, exactly the same wine released in 2004 but with a decade sur lie. The 2001 vintage provided plenty of natural acidity and it shows in this elegant effort. Light gold in color, it displays complex aromas and flavors along with an attractive minerality. Mouth-filling, creamy textured, and long, this pleasure-bent bubbly is meant for drinking over the next 3-4 years. As usual, Argyle's sparkling wine offerings are among the best made in the USA.

93 points Wine Spectator

 Lithe and silky, elegant and refined, with subtle white pepper and spicy floral hints weaving through the grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Finishes with deft balance. Impressive for its length. Drink now.  (12/ 2011)

Additional Information:

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
