The discoveries of the Greek mathematician Archimedes nearly 2,000 years ago established laws of physics still viable today. Francis Coppolas grandfather, Agostino, so greatly admired the intellect and ingenuity of the mathematician that he gave his first son the same name. Today, we pay homage to Coppolas Uncle Archimedes with our new flagship wine.
Archimedes is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley and Cabernet Franc from Knights Valley. Atypical of most Cabernet Francs, ours is darker and more opaque than our Cabernet Sauvignon. Incredibly smooth, with velvety tannins and intense aromas of dark sour cherries, cranberries and sandalwood, this rich, robust wine exudes an amazing array of berries and cassis, plus a tapestry of wood, spices, and tobacco.
