Considered one of the greatest mathematical minds of all time, Archimedes of ancient Greece was a physicist, astronomer, engineer, and inventor. The lever, compound pulley, and hydraulic screw are among his many inventions. As legend has it, Archimedes defeated the Roman army at sea by creating enormous reflective devices which harnessed the sun’s rays to ignite and burn their ships. The painting reproduced on our label memorializes this amazing moment in history. Having admired this great innovator, Francis Ford Coppola’s grandfather, Augusto, named his first son Archimedes. With this wine we pay homage to Uncle Archimedes, a man who loved math and mechanics as much as his namesake.

Deep garnet in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Archimedes offers pronounced cassis, crushed blueberries and cedar notes with hints of bay leaves, eucalyptus and chocolate box. Medium-bodied, the palate leads with a firm structure of chewy tannins and just enough acidity, supporting tightly wound, muscular fruit and finishing taut yet promising. I’ve been conservative with my scoring, given that it is still very youthful and relatively ungiving on the palate. I suggest giving it 2-4 years in bottle and plan to drink it over the next 20+ years.
