Areté 2018 Brut Blanc de Noirs Sparkling (Willamette Valley)

Initially this was fermented in French oak, then finished in the bottle by the Champagne method. It's all Pinot Noir, a rather coarse and fruity wine, which spreads across the palate with flavors of bruised apple, ripe honeydew and lemon rind. Not a finesse wine, but packing plenty of flavor, it should be opened now and through the middle of the decade. Paul Gregutt
