2012 "The Archimage" Red Blend 1500mL

2012 "The Archimage" Red Blend 1500mL
2012 "The Archimage" Red Blend 1500mL

The 2012 Archimage is a blend of 49% Cabernet Franc, 48% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, and is the result of meticulous growers and a dedicated winemaking team. Aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak, it is intensely colored, and greets you with opulent aromas of Asian spices, red fruits, licorice, and dried herbs, all enveloped in subtle oak aromas. The beautiful red fruit flavors of bing cherry and mixed berry from the Merlot marry beautifully with the herb, pepper, and spice of the Cabernet Franc , finishing on the palate with notes of dark chocolate and coffee that linger expressively for an extended period. While characteristically approachable already, this wine has the well-integrated tannins and excellent acidity to cellar well. Drink now through 2025.

2012 “The Archimage” Red Blend (current release) – 93 points Wine Advocate

The best vintage for this cuvee to date, there are 775 cases of the 2012 The Archimage (49% Cabernet Franc, 48% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon). It offers classic blackcurrants, graphite, leafy herbs and hints of charred meats to go with a full-bodied, supple, layered and beautifully pure profile on the palate. Seeing 20 months in 39% new French oak, it has enough mid-palate depth and fine tannin on the finish to evolve for 10-15 years.
