2018 CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY
With its flawless growing season, 2018 is a classic vintage in the Napa Valley. An endless summer that gave way to extended Autumnal perfection, allowed for ideal ripening conditions throughout. This wine presents a mélange of pure red and black fruit character that explodes across the palate, dancing on an exquisite ribbon of tannin that defines the perfectly-honed structure. A beautifully harmonious and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.
2018 SYRAH, SONOMA COUNTY
Singularly great, 2018 is an all-time vintage, achieving unparalleled heights. An endless summer gave way to Autumnal perfection, allowing our Syrah vines a nearly unprecedented opportunity to leisurely ripen their crop all the way into November, under ideal conditions. This is nothing short of pinnacle Sonoma County Syrah — black fruits lifted by high-toned florality, tell-tale Syrah pepper, and savory notes of freshly tanned leather and black earth. As we like to make them, a Syrah-lovers Syrah.
2018 PINOT NOIR
Everything you have come to expect from an Argot Pinot Noir, shone through the filter of a textbook-perfect vintage. We simply can not get over the quality of fruit this wine displays! Intense, yet fresh; fruity, yet spicy; brambly, yet juicy; immediate, yet lingering. A Pinot Noir that displays the variety’s natural come-hither attitude, while succinctly capturing its intriguing nature. There are not enough superlatives to describe this wine. Almost too easy to love!
Pouring a green-tinted gold, our Sonoma County Chardonnay is a beautiful wine from word go. Radiating from within, a blast of apple/pear fruit informs this wine both aromatically, and on the palate. As flavors unfurl, a progression of orange blossom, pineapple, white peach, and hazlenut are followed by a finish dominated by ginger, baked apple, with a trailing kiss of mint’s freshness. A stunning wine — wholly informed by the perfection of 2018’s growing season — defined by its dichotomy of massively intense flavors, and superb acidity and freshness.
