Black Brut has become a fan favorite at Argyle. Fully pressed red wine is put under tirage for Argyle’s traditional minimum of three years. The smokiness of this wine is a lovely match with barbeque ribs.

The 2014 growing season began with plenty of sunshine and warmth throughout the Spring. About two weeks ahead of normal, the early June bloom continued with fantastic weather, leading to an above average fruit set. This required us to meticulously thin our vineyards in order to capture dense, vibrant fruit flavors. The summer was quite warm, seeing a near record number of 90º+ days.
