Congratulations to Log Haven restaurant owner Margo Provost and her dedicated staff on the celebration of their 25th anniversary this month. In honor of this milestone, Log Haven worked with Santa Barbara winemaker Rick Longoria to create an elegant red anniversary wine called Argentum. I had to look it up, but Argentum means silver, and this is Log Haven’s silver anniversary.
Each of the components of the Argentum 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. The wine is brimming with red berry flavors, hints of vanilla, and is a blend of 28% Syrah, 26% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Merlot.
Said owner Margo Provost of Log Haven’s latest milestone, “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.”
Argentum is available at Log Haven restaurant while supplies last. Among the many awards and accolades that Log Haven has piled up, it was named ‘Top 10 Romantic Restaurants in the U.S.’ by USA Today and America’s Most Scenic Restaurants (as featured in Forbes). Here’s to another delicious 25 years!
