Born in the MidWest, to a large Irish family, wine did not play a role in Justin’s life while growing up. Milk was the beverage of choice at the dinner table, and the industrial beers of the Midwest, fueled family parties. He does not pinpoint a specific moment that his passion for wine was ignited but, instead, attributes it to a series of experiences, places visited, bottles opened and friendships forged. At this point in life, he can not imagine a life without the joys of all things wine! Times can change…

Tasting Notes: A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 Argot exhibits a series of Napa hallmarks — a piercing purity of black and red currant fruit; paradoxical textures that are both weightless and coating; complexities of ripe powerful blueberries and cassis – This Argot Cabernet is full-bodied, and loaded with blackstone fruit, ripe and silky tannins, the right touch of well-balanced acidity. Although showing very well now, this wine offers some good aging potential. This wine is real BARGAIN!
Vineyards: A triptych of Napa terroirs—Suscol Mountain’s untamed slopes in the Valley’s southern climes; Sugarloaf West’s ferociously steep hillside; Bonny’s Vineyard’s ancient, gravel riverbed on Oakville’s floor; Sage Ridge’s wildly dramatic ridgetop in the far-eastern hillsides.
Winemaker Notes: Singularly great, 2018 is an all-time vintage, achieving rarely experienced heights. A mild summer gave way to Autumnal perfection, allowing both warmer and cooler sites to leisurely ripen crop under ideal conditions. What followed was a deeply developed palate of components that blended into a beautifully complex, complete wine. What arrives in the glass is nothing short of delicious, delivers significant value and massively over delivers. Enjoy!
