Napa Valley Argos (Bordeaux style blend)

A nice, cool evening, a bright glow in the fireplace, warm aromas waft through the air...leg of lamb, roasted herb potatoes, green beans with bacon, and Dutch Henry Napa Valley Argos. Our award-winning Argos, named after the loyal Homeric canine companion of Odysseus, is Bordeaux styled with the cream of the crop from vintage to vintage, and represents a selective blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.  The wine ages 20 months in barrels, with 45% new French oak.  This wine opens with Bing cherry and plum, and reveals notes of clove, anise, and honey.  Firm tannins make this a good candidate for aging.
