2014 The Argonaut

Sauvignon Blanc
North Coast, California


Our latest offering of The Argonaut is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The Argonaut is an octopus with a shell. As bizarre as that sounds, in 300 B.C., Aristotle proposed that the female Argonaut used her shell as a boat and her eight arms to row it! Have no fear. Enjoying The Argonaut probably won't lead you to proposing any new theories about the natural world, but after a long day, you might still be tempted to contemplate the animal kingdom while savoring this refreshing Sauvignon Blanc, and maybe snacking on a ring, or two, of calamari!

The Sauvignon Blanc is sustainably grown and sourced from Sandy Bend Vineyard in Lake County. The grapes were destemmed, crushed only to broken berry and pressed into a stainless steel tank where they underwent a slow, cool fermentation.

The Argonaut is clean and crisp with hints of citrus, pear and stone fruit. With a note of minerality on the finish, The Argonaut is a perfectly balanced, refreshing white wine, that pairs well with seafood (dare we say Octopus!), cheese and a variety of lighter style dishes.

Enjoy now and over the next few years.
