2015 “BORROWED JEWELS” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
SUGARLOAF VINEYARD, NAPA VALLEY

View Vintage Notes
Our first barrel select Cabernet! Superiorly luxurious textures are the hallmark of 2015’s Borrowed Jewels. Gorgeous fruit notes of red licorice, black cherry and red currant provide the base, while a towering amalgam of gingerbread spice, espresso roast, spruce tips, and milk chocolate add complexity. Flavors flow across the palate on a bed of silky, uber-suave tannins, delivering a wine of great length and might. Argot’s greatest Cabernet to date!!

2015 SIMPATICO RANCH CHARDONNAY
BENNETT VALLEY

View Vintage Notes
From old-vines. A-glow with an eye-catching, chartreuse halo; from first pour it is apparent that this is a special Chardonnay. Powerful aromas of key-lime, white flowers, orange blossoms and a flinty, sauvage note define a wildly complex nose. Once in the mouth, gracefully pronounced textures coat the palate delivering an exotic interpretation of cool-climate Chardonnay character — lime peel, orange blossom, ginger and clove —lingerings deep into a vibrant finish.

2014 ESTATE CHARDONNAY
SONOMA MOUNTAIN

View Vintage Notes
Planted in the steepest, coolest section of the vineyard. This Chardonnay block is the most meager producer in the entire portfolio.  Yielding both tiny clusters and berries, these vines produce fruit of intense power and flavor, all while retaining a humming, vibrant backbone of acidity owing to the cool-climate nature of the Estate Vineyard’s terroir.  Vinted in a style indebted to the vaunted school of Meursault winemaking.

2014 ESTATE PINOT NOIR
SONOMA MOUNTAIN

View Vintage Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Vines are tended to a meager yield each year due to clonal selection, inter-vine competition and aggressive vine-by-vine farming management.  What arrives in the glass is a full-throttle expression of mountain-side, Heritage-selection Pinot Noir flavors—a tendency toward black fruit, accented by streaks of forest floor, clove spice and white flowers— with incredible depth and intensity, framed by a structure built to evolve for years in the cellar.  A no-holds barred Pinot Noir.

2013 ESTATE SYRAH
SONOMA MOUNTAIN

View Vintage Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
When it comes to Syrah, we never stop trumpeting patience. In continuing to explore this variety’s magnificence, those examples we find most intriguing employ extended barrel raising, leading to deeper concentration of flavors, silkier textures and a haunting complexity that continues to echo deep into the finish.  Because of this, each subsequent year we push deeper into these wines’ ability to evolve in barrel, resulting in staggeringly monumental wines.  This is what we drink at home!
