Archimedes is a blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon, 7% petit verdot, 7% cabernet franc and 6% malbec from Alexander Valley, Sonoma County. The wine matures for 20 months in French oak barrels, of which 50% are new barrels. The wine is named after the Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer. Archimedes is widely regarded as the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. On the label you see one of the stories, which describes how Achimedes managed to defeat an entire Roman fleet by using a construction of mirrors to set the Roman boats on fire. Francis Ford Coppola's grandfather, Augusto, was an admirer of this Greek legend and named his eldest son after Archimedes. The wine is therefore a tribute to Uncle Archimedes.

Archimides is made for the true connoisseur and is only available in limited editions. When you open a bottle of Archimedes, the tempting scents of cocoa, toffee and raisins greet you. The wine is dark in color and the rich, soft tannins and mouth-filling flavors of mocha, cassis and cloves are accompanied by hints of tobacco in the long finish. A beautifully integrated wine! The Coppola Archimedes is a meditative wine, but also delicious with Beef Bourguignon, grilled lamb with portobello mushrooms or gorgonzola burgers.
