ARGOSY
BIG. BOLD. RED.

The Navarra region of Spain is located to  the northeast of La  Rioja, and the Pyrenees Mountains run along its northern border.  The region enjoys an exceptional location, one which is  practically unique in  the Iberian Peninsula and is  marked by  the confluence of the Atlantic, Continental and Mediterranean climates.  The mixture of  traditional Tempranillo and the “foreigner" Cabernet  varieties, and the savoir-faire of enterprising winemakers has given the wines made in Navarra their own distinctive character.
