Rich, opulent, dramatically aromatic, and boasting flavors of red cherries, raspberries, and savory herbs, the 2011 Archimage is an exquisite blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged for 23 months in French oak (34% new). The cool 2011 vintage allowed us to hang our grapes two-three weeks later than normal, producing optimal flavor and tannin development for a full flavored, classic “homage” to the Right Bank blends of Bordeaux. It finishes long and elegant, with fine grained tannins and vibrant acidity. While immediatley approachable, this wine will provide great drinking enjoyment and will continue to evolve over the next 10-15 years at least. Only 675 cases were produced.
