Argot set some pretty high expectations when they named this Cabernet ‘Starstruck’ and we’re happy to say the wine lives up to the label. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Merlot, this is an elevated vintage from Argot and is sure to have Napa Cabernet lovers...well...starstruck. We can’t get enough of the impenetrably dark beauty with heaven-sent structure, powerful energy, and haunting persistence. Drink it now or tuck all that sweet, black fruit away for a decade – the star will keep shining.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Starstruck has a deep garnet-purple color and beguiling notes of fresh wild blueberries, Morello cherries and mulberries, followed by a core of warm cassis, chocolate mint, stewed black tea and dried roses. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, the palate slowly releases loads of fragrant layers, textured with ripe, soft tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a lingering minty kick. Yum! 150 cases were made.
