2014 RMS Sparkling Wine

ABOUT RMS

In 1987, when all other Willamette Valley wine producers were focused on Pinot Noir, Rollin Soles had his own vision. Rollin, having recently arrived in Oregon from Australia, where he made wine at Petaluma Winery, built Oregon's first sparkling wine production facility in Dundee, Oregon at Argyle. He believed that Oregon was the best place in North America to grow cool climate grapes for sparkling wine.

During his 27+ years with Argyle, Rollin crafted some of the most highly acclamied New World Sparkling Wines, which resulted in appearing on Wine Spectator's Top 100 three times, proof that he has mastered the sophisticated craft of fine Methòde Champenosie. Rollin's vision became a reality as the world discovers that the Willamette Valley's cool, maritime climate is indeed ideally suited to world-class sparkling wine production. 

2014 VINTAGE NOTES

The 2014 growing season started out beautifully and stayed that way to the end. The gentle warm weather allowed the grape flowers to pollenate in large numbers resulting in many grape clusters. The summer was dry and sunny but ended in some rain. These cold rain events at the end of August and mid September were very welcomed. The precipitation perked the vines up delivering extraordinary fruit. The fruit was harvested from September 11th to October 5th. The sparkling wine grapse showed ripe fruit and high acidity.

"This is a splurge-worthy wine from Rollin Soles..." The Washington Post

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES:

Guava, yellow plum, Comice pear and hints of red grapefruit with a warm, fresh baguette and vanilla spice finish. This wine is lush, yet has a lovely firm backbone of natural fruit acid. Seamless from front to finish.

-Rollin Soles, Winemaker

“The second release of this tête de cuvée offering from Roco is two thirds Pinot Noir and one third Chardonnay, and winemaker Rollin Soles (Argyle) seems to have saved his best for it. Matching intense fruit to classic Champagne-style finesse, it’s brightly layered with apple, pear and Mandarin orange flavors. It has a fine bead and finishes clean, with citrus and toast highlights.” -P. G., 11/17

“Sleek and lovely, with delicately expressive Asian pear, brioche and roasted nut flavors that glide on the long, crisp and vibrant finish. Drink now.” -T.F., 04/18

 


The Washington Post

"This is a splurge-worthy sparkling wine from Rollin Soles (the RMS of the wine's name), the winemaker who established Argyle as Oregon's leading bubbly producer before launchng his own winery. The RMS Brut is bright, fruity and complex, with its structure suggesting it will age well, if you can keep your mitts off it." D.M., 11/17
