The 2018 Archimage, comprised of 52% Cabernet Franc and 48% Merlot, was aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak. Our Estate Vineyard blocks, located in both the Walla Walla and Red Mountain AVAs, make up the entirety of this incredible wine. It has aromas and flavors of dark plums, exotic spices, wet stones, anise, a hint of cedar, and fresh picked herbs, along with both red and black cherries. The oak notes complement and lift the fruit and earthy elements of this wine, and the terrific acidity adds freshness to the long, lingering finish. The tannins are prominent yet completely integrated and will help this wine age for the next two decades, and perhaps longer!
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
