SEATTLETIMES.COM – When you reach for bubbly to celebrate the New Year, keep it local.
The Pacific Northwest has a variety of sparkling wine options, but Argyle Winery’s Vintage Brut, from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, is a standout. The winery has produced world-class sparkling wine since 1987 that has a crowd-pleasing, round flavor with refreshing effervescence.
The 2013 vintage, made of mostly Pinot Noir grapes, showcases the best of the region, with peach, honey and anise notes and a balanced finish.
