The 1998 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Green Label Syrah is a combination of wine styles. Its obvious opaque, saturated ruby/purple color is indicative of a ripe vintage and concentrated fruit. On the nose, the lifted aromas of red raspberries and clove spice tell of a cool growing region and a more elegant style of Syrah. The palate explodes with black currant and red fruits and the impressive length and extract are indicative of low yields and careful management in the vineyards.

My husband and I took a wine country tour in March and wanted to hit the Francis Coppola winery not so much for the wine, but more for the great movie props (the desk from the Godfather, the car from Tank, etc.). Boy were we surprised when we opted to do a wine tasting. This Syrah was warm and full-bodied with an incredibly smooth taste left to linger. We of course purchased some and had our first at home bottle a few weeks ago when my brother in law came to town (an avid wine collector himself). I paired it with a seafood pasta (clams, mussels, scallops, and shrimp) and needless to say, we were not able to stop at one bottle. This will definitely become a staple in our cellar as well as a prime gift for us to give. Try it.
