Archium 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Dissident

Archium’s 2012 Dissident Rhone Blend is the winery’s flagship offering, blending 52% Syrah with 48% Grenache from Santa Ynez Valley’s Stolpman Vineyard. The name ‘Dissident’ symbolizes someone who challenges a belief system, set of laws, or established doctrine, and was chosen since Ian and Zach are always experimenting and never afraid to try new winemaking methods. The wine’s back label includes the credo, “Along the path, rules are questioned in hopes that we may discover and create our own.” Spicy on the nose, Archium’s 2012 Dissident offers a rich palate of earthy, dense and ripe berry flavors [+]
