Sleight Of Hand Cellars 'The Archimage' Reserve Red Blend 2017, Columbia Valley, Washington

“The 2017 Archimage is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc and 48% Merlot. It was aged for 20 months in 33% new French oak. Our Estate vineyard blocks make up almost the entirety of this incredible wine. It has aromas and flavors of exotic spices, wet earth, anise, a hint of cedar, flowers, and fresh picked herbs, along with black cherries, blueberries, and plums. The terrific acidity keeps this wine fresh through to the long, lingering finish. The tannins are completely integrated and will help this wine age for the next two decades, and perhaps longer!” – From the Winery. Sleight of Hand Cellars was launched in 2007 by Jerry and Sandy Solomon, along with Trey Busch, who had been making the wines for a small Walla Walla winery. Sleight of Hand Cellars has but one focus, and that is to craft exceptional wines from exceptional vineyards in the state of Washington.
