Log Haven celebrates their 25th anniversary this November. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, Log Haven commissioned Rick Longoria to create Argentum. This red blend is composed of grape varietals that represent the best of the Santa Barbara wine region.
Winemaking: Each of the components of the blend were harvested at the peak of their grape maturity in 2017, and then brought to the winery for processing. The lots were fermented in small open top fermenters, punched down by hand during fermentation, then pressed off and racked to French oak wine barrels for extended aging in the cellar. Approximately 32% of the blend was aged in new French oak barrels. After 22 months of barrel aging and extensive blending rails, the wines were blended, filtered and bottled in August 2019.
Tasting Notes: Argentum is balanced and nuanced with notes of red berries, cigar box and a touch of vanilla, 28% Syrah, 26% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot
Cost: $89.00 bottle ; $19.00 glass
“It is an honor to have served our community for 25 years. Our lives have been enhanced as we share your special occasions and help you memorialize time spent with friends and loved ones. Argentum was created to commemorate 25 years of Nature, Nourishment and Nurturing at Log Haven. Thank you all.” – Margo Provost
