2013 Argot Syrah Sonoma Mountain

$69.95
JD95

Argot’s Syrah is California’s answer to a great Northern Rhone red, with more sunshine than Hermitage can dream of at night. Dunnuck loved its “awesome bouquet of blackberries, black raspberries, green olives, spring flowers, bacon fat, and subtle barbecue and obvious meaty aromas and flavors. It’s deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and seamlessly put together on the palate, with perfect integration of its fruit, acidity, and tannin, this is a world class Syrah that wouldn’t be out of place in a lineup of top Hermitage.”

The 2013 Syrah Estate Vineyard offers a touch more intensity as well as a cooler climate feel in its awesome bouquet of blackberries, black raspberries, green olives, spring flowers, bacon fat, and subtle barbecue and obvious meaty aromas and flavors. It’s deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and seamlessly put together on the palate, with perfect integration of its fruit, acidity, and tannin, this is a world class Syrah that wouldn’t be out of place in a lineup of top Hermitage (it’s more Méal than Bessards). Drink it any time over the coming decade
