COPPOLA DIRECTOR'S CUT ZINFANDEL
- Voluptuous, concentrated flavors of fruit jam, chocolate and vanilla
- Terrific vintage showed great complexity
- Lush full body and velvety palate
The origin of what would eventually become Francis Ford Coppola Winery started in 1997 with the creation of the first brand and wine of the Diamond Collection. In 2006, Francis Coppola acquired the future home and site of the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville, Sonoma County.The wine making team of Francis Ford Coppola Winery consists of 5 world class winemakers and a crew of over 60. The wines express true appellation characteristics of California, which made in the same spirit - for sharing with friends and family, following the motto of the company: “food, wine, adventure”.
This Zinfandel is unique in that it’s blended with the best selections of Petite Sirah. Even though the Zinfandel from this terrific vintage showed great complexity on its own, Petite Sirah was added to enhance the structure of the wine. A combination of French and American oak enhanced the fruit’s spice qualities, giving the wine some shoulders as well. The 2014 Director’s Cut Zinfandel demonstrates a lush full body and velvety palate. Scents of blackberries, cherries, cloves, black pepper and oak are followed by flavors of black currants and raspberries that are enlivened with intriguing notes of bramble, anise, and spices.
