  • A luxurious Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, delivering immensely concentrated flavors of black cherries and juicy red plums.

The discoveries of the Greek mathematician Archimedes nearly 2,000 years ago established laws of physics still viable today. Francis Coppola’s 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 Coppola’s Uncle Archimedes with our new flagship wine.

Archimedes is a Cabernet Sauvignon that derives its alluring spice quality from the small amount of very unique Knights Valley Cabernet Franc that is added to the blend. This fruit is highly aromatic and extremely dark, which is atypical of the varietal. We use a significant amount of Cabernet Sauvignon from our own Estate and additional lots from Alexander Valley and Knights Valley vineyards we find particularly impressive, well concentrated, and distinct. We get very bright cherry notes from the Alexander Valley fruit, and darker fruit impressions from the Knights Valley grapes. The final wine is created by selecting the best blend from individual barrels within each lot. This accounts for Archimedes’ tremendous complexity.
