2008 Argyle Brut Rosé Tasting Notes:
We are really dialing in amazing sparkling Rose these days! The aromas of this wine are uniquely complex and delightful. There’s nothing this sophisticated out in the New World of sparkling Rose. The aromas are a lovely pink/red rose petal with a spice driven red berry like wild salal or Oregon native black cap raspberry. Put in a hint of Valencia orange citrus. The flavor is super rich and viscous. Fruit complexity of black cap raspberry, cardamom spice revolve around a core of plum and fresh pomegranate beads. The finish is a long, pleasant experience like enjoying the leavings of the best strawberry shortcake you’ve ever enjoyed. There is something magnetic about the quality of this wine. Stick one into your fridge!

Expert Review
90 Points - "Fresh and firm and very lively in style, this engaging youngster is the rare bottle of bubbles that suggests that further aging will be a boon. It combines tart, lemon-edged raspberry fruit with a deft complement of autolyzed yeast, and the impression of careful winemaking and balance is a consistent one from beginning to end. Make no mistake, it affords fine drinking right now, but we are betting that its latent complexities become a little more accessible with time."

Eyrie Trousseau Noir 2017 
Characteristics: As Pinot Noir really develops under long, cool growing conditions, California has a lot to offer –especially from parts of Sonoma, the Central Coast, Santa Barbara and San Benito. Such pockets of terroir yield Pinot Noirs of exemplary varietal character while conveying the given terroir. These transmute simply Pinot Noir by numbers. Although Burgundy has a couple millennia on us, we are apt pupils and California Pinot Noir at once combines the ripe complexity of the West Coast, while crafting great Pinot Noir of primary red fruits such as cherries, strawberries, raspberries –even bright plums. With time these can spread out from this profile to show more of the land from whence they came –whether supple from fog blanketed Carneros or mineral from the precious lime stone of Mt Harlan. To taste California Pinot Noir is to travel to the very AVAs they come from.

Girardin Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentieres 2015 
Characteristics: Vincent Girardin 2009 Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentières, Côte de Beaune | 13.5% | Delicious wine from 50 year old vines of Pinot Noir on the Premier Cru climat of Les Serpentières. The village of Savigny-les-Beaune is located in the Côte de Beaune, a couple miles north of the village of Beaune. The wine area of Savigny-les-Beaune is one of the oldest of Burgundy and a lot of parcels belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy and to the Abbeys of Citeaux and Maizières. "Les Serpentières" is located at the opposite of the Marconnets' plot and here the soil are chalky with stones and gravels a bit of clay. In 228 liter French oak barrels of which 15% are new, malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is then aged 14 months, and then bottled without fining or filtration following the moon calendar. A wine with plenty of fruit with well integrated structure, this is full and round, very long and charming start to finish. In terms of food pairings, this is versatile but for starters think starters, pâtés, white and red meat.

Marchesi Pancrazi Pinot Noir villa Bagnolo 2010 
Characteristics: Pinot Noir Villa di Bagnolo Toscana IGT: 100% Pinot Nero almost exclusively from Burgundian clones. The vineyards are south-facing, and the microclimate is cool and well ventilated, with significant temperature variance between daytime and nighttime. Altitude is moderate, 0-492 feet a.s.l., favoring grape maturation. The soil is shaly and clayey, volcanic in origin (Monte Ferrato is an extinct volcano) and particularly rich in iron, which is instrumental to Pinot Noir complexity. Water supplies in the Bagnolo area are abundant throughout the year and the soil itself has high levels of humidity; these are crucial factors for the variety, which is especially sensitive to drought. The wine is aged one year in French oak barriques followed by one year of bottle aging. Small crops and cru characteristics endow the wine with superb intensity, purple color, remarkable fruit aromas reminiscent of blackberries & plums, also mint nuances, coffee, licorice & vanilla; round, soft, luscious & lingering on the palate.
