2007 Minus Five Tasting Notes
The aromas and flavor of this fascinating dessert styled Riesling weave in and out of citrus peel, honeycomb, apricot compote, and Christmas spices. This wine beautifully balances aspects of sweetness from residual sugar and acidity onto a razor's edge like no other Argyle Minus Five wine! "Two thumbs up and a curly Cue!"
Argyler comments about 2007 Minus Five
I have enjoyed not only your wines but your e-mails, website, tasting room, courtesy on the phone and over the internet -- in other words, all the components that make dealing with you such fun and a real pleasure. That you are back in the Minus-5 game again is just frosting on the cake. Way back in 2005 (!) your '04 vintage was only the 2nd late-harvest wine my wife ever tasted. We keep a book with ratings and tasting notes. On the four-star scale, she rated Minus-5 four stars. Now, you can argue that this was easy grading by a rookie, but she's always thought fondly back upon that wine. - TM
