The Williamsburg Winery Gabriel Archer Reserve 2003
This is a premium red wine, skillfully styled to reflect the art of blending in the Bordeaux tradition. Gabriel Archer Reserve represents the best efforts of the winemaking team to produce the finest, most complex red wine possible. This vintage is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Dornfelder, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc, combining only what the winemakers deem to be the best barrels from the vintage. Gabriel Archer is only bottled in those vintages of suitable quality. This unique and distinctive wine is is named in honor of the co-captain of the "Godspeed," arriving in the New World in April, 1607. Captain Gabriel Archer led the first exploration party up the James River, choosing as his preferred landing site a point later to be known as "Archer's Hope," now part of the farm where The Williamsburg Winery stands.
One of Virginia's largest wineries producing over 60,000 cases per year. For the 3rd consecutive year "Decanter World Wine Awards" of London has rated several Williamsburg Winery wines as some of the "Worlds Best Wines". NOW OPEN, Wedmore Place, a 28 room luxury hotel on the grounds of the winery. www.wedmoreplace.com
