Empire is Argonza Cellars new and untraditional blend. It has a characteristic color of deep burgundy red, with scents of cedar, prunes, and soft violet. The mouthfeel is smooth and round having hints of raspberry, cherry, dark chocolate and black currants. This non-vintage and an untraditional blend of Italian and French varietal can be aged for 3 years but can also
be enjoyed early. Pairs well with barbecued red meat rub with sweet mesquite seasonings, grilled mushrooms with cream sauces, Latin or spicy Asian dishes, and poultry.
Argonza Cellars creates handcrafted wines that embody the subtleties of a bold new breed of winemaking while maintaining California’s finest traditions of quality.
