Wine Advocate 93 points - The Argyle 2008 Brut Knudsen Vineyard delivers an alluring wealth of mineral nuances, incorporating a salinity that – in alliance with vivid and colorful citric notes (suggesting lime, grapefruit and tangerine) – gets a total purchase on the taster’s salivary glands. And speaking of colorful, there is a fruity succulence here that puts me in mind of fresh pears sprinkled with red currants and drizzled with a mixture of lime juice and kirsch. Subtle, lees-enhanced creaminess and toastiness serve as ideal counterpoint to refreshing brightness; while levity and liveliness are grounded in palpable extract richness. Look for this superb sparkler to develop intriguingly for at least 3-4 years in bottle (though as with any such methode champenoise, don’t cellar it unless your conditions are excellent).  (Oct 2013)

Wine Spectator 92 points - Crisp, focused, delicate and distinctive, with tobacco-accented citrus and passion fruit flavors, hinting at tomato leaf as the finish lingers enticingly. Finishes with persistence and elegance. Drink now.—H.S. (Oct 24 2012)
