Roof on 3/12 toh magazine cover

Does anyone know the manufacturer and name of the shingle
on the cover of the This Old House magazine
(March 2012 issue)? I realize that readers may not be privy to this knowledge, but I have been looking for this type of
shingle for some time and have not seen anything that
looks quite like this. This is exactly what I have been looking for. Ready for a roof this spring!

Yogert- The accompanying article mentions how quality replicas 'can lead to major transformations' and I think those architectural shingles (CertainTeed Landmark Premium Asphalt) really help drive that point home.

I confirmed the details with the owners, but they weren't rock solid about the color. I really think it's Weathered Wood, but am including a link to let you judge for yourself (...it could be Sunrise Cedar or Adobe.) http://www.mclean-roofing.com/certainteedlandmark-shingle-colors.htm

I hope you get that roof on this spring.

Thank you so much for the information.
Funny, we had decided on Certainteed Weathered Wood prior
to your reply. Good to get some closure on our decision.
