In our pursuit of producing only the best, there are, inevitably, batches of wine and portions of barrels that just don't make it past Gerhard's highly discriminating palate. Our Argentum has become a staple at several high-end restaurants' by-the-glass program, and continues to be enjoyed by consumers looking for a solid wine at an immense value. Perfect for the everyday Delectus indulgence! Our customers are quickly figuring out why so many restaurants are jumping to get Argentum: How else can you find a Delectus wine at such a price! Made of bits and pieces of all our front-line wines (yes, there is Sacrashe in it, too!!) and various press wines, it is once again a Cab-driven blend that is accentuated by Merlot, Petite Sirah, and Syrah. The official release date is September 15, and it typically sells out by December. If you are looking for a "guilt-free" wine that does not require guests or a special occasion, this is your wine. Order by the case before it's gone. Tasting Notes: The nose is abundant with dark mouth-watering fruits like Bing cherry and blackberry. A hint of rose hips and pomegranate peel soon follow. It is rounded out with spicy notes of bay leaf, herbs and camphor. The mouth is fruit forward. This wine grips the roof of your mouth with fleshy tannins that lingers to a medium to long finish. The flavors of cedar, baking chocolate and laurel keep you coming back for more.
