About The Wine


A selection from Justin's favourite Syrah terroir, with an emphasis on the Alban 1 clone, given an extended 22 month elevage in new, French oak barriques for maximum impact and richness.


The vineyard is situated at 335 metres on a north-facing, gently-rolling hillside, composed of a geological upheaval of ashy, moondust-like soils, littered with ancient seabed. Sonoma Mountain’s ridgetops — demarcating the cool Sonoma Coast AVA, from the more moderate Sonoma Valley AVA — deliver an utterly unique expression of Syrah, distinct from that grown elsewhere in Sonoma County.


Argot Indigo Syrah 2018

  • "A step up over the appellation Syrah, the 2018 Syrah Indigo is another beautiful, classic Syrah from this estate that readers are going to love. Coming from a site on Sonoma Mountain, it has a complex nose of spiced black raspberries and blackberries mixed with notes of camphor, bacon fat, spiced meats, and dried flowers. Complex and full-bodied, with a round, layered texture and a great finish, it’s well worth seeking out and is going to stand up to any Syrah coming out of California today."
