About Archimedes 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Ford Coppola's flagship Sonoma Cab, Archimedes is crafted from small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from prime Alexander Valley vineyards and produced in very limited quantity for the true connoisseur. Archimedes matures in barrels for 18 months in order to achieve a high degree of tannin development, flavor integration, and textural refinement. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec aged in 50% new French oak barrels. The Wine Advocate said "Deep garnet in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Archimedes offers pronounced cassis, crushed blueberries and cedar notes with hints of bay leaves, eucalyptus and chocolate box. Medium-bodied, the palate leads with a firm structure of chewy tannins and just enough acidity, supporting tightly wound, muscular fruit and finishing taut yet promising. I’ve been conservative with my scoring, given that it is still very youthful and relatively ungiving on the palate. I suggest giving it 2-4 years in bottle and plan to drink it over the next 20+ years." and it garnered a 97 point Platinum Award in the 2018 Critics Challenge Competition. Wine Review Online also gave it 97 saying "This is one of the finest expressions of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon you will ever taste. This massive, powerful wine is richly layered and borderline decadent without losing that most elusive element of elegance that separates great Cabernet Sauvignon from the merely very good. Showing aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of cedar and graphite, it is a towering achievement for Archimedes."
