Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Do you get more pleasure from the bouquet of a wine or it's flavours on the palate? If the bouquet is your answer then this may be the wine for you. Hugely complex with cassis and herbs dominating the nose. In exchange for such complex aromas one must trade off some power with this wine resulting in a medium weight beauty. Four years old and still has plenty of tannin for aging. I suggest 2 more years from now.
Produced by Francis Ford Coppola, Archimedes 2014 is a medium-plus-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. liquid blueberries, cedar brush, savoury spice and dark chocolate flavours can be found on the mid-palate. Tannins are chewy and good acidity match body and fruit. Still young, this wine would benefit from some time in cellar. Decant for two hours and pair with a well-marbled ribeye, or cellar for 10 years and Drink for the next 10 thereafter. The wine was aged 24 months in French oak barrels. The wine is named after the Greek mathematician Archimedes who nearly 2,000 years ago established the laws of physics. Archimedes' principle, a law of physics, indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. But does that mean we get more wine? - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
