External Reviews for Archipel
Archipel Archipel Sonoma County 2003 and all other premium wine from Archipel available at discounted prices at CheaperCigars.com. We also carry many other premium wine lables from USA and all over the world.
Full ruby-red. Aromas of currant, raspberry, tobacco, mint and herbs. Rich, broad and fairly dry, with flavors of briary red fruits, pepper, mocha, tobacco and flowers. The brooding flavors are typical of Mayacamas mountain fruit, but this wine seems unusually accessible today, with rather sweet, suave tannins.
Good medium ruby. Musky, slightly briary aromas of dark berries, licorice, espresso and menthol. Brooding, dense and rather powerful, with an impression of medicinal austerity. Briary mountain flavors lead to firm tannins. Not at all a sweet style.
Medium ruby-red. Claret-like aromas of currant, coffee and tobacco. Lush and smooth, with nicely focused, intense flavors of currant and menthol. Not yet expansive but juicy, structured and firm.
A serious blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc from Napa and Sonoma vineyards owned by Jess Jackson, the 2001 Archipel is a wine of formidable intensity. Similar to the Cardinale Napa bottling (although much less expensive), there are 5,600 cases of this deep ruby/purple-colored offering. Big, blackberry and cassis flavors are interwoven with cedar, toasty oak, and spice box. Supple tannin as well as full-bodied flavors suggest it will drink well young, yet age nicely for 10ndash;15 years.
