Winemaker's Notes:

This is Francis Coppola's second year producing Diamond Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. For a decade they've bottled Claret — a robust red blend largely comprised of Cabernet — but they wanted to offer a single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon as well in order to show off the elegance of their grapes.

The 2006 growing season was long and cool, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine weeks longer than usual. As a result, this wine has immense concentration, rich color, and profuse aromatics that give way to layers of enduring flavor.

Appearance: Dark garnet

Aromas: Currants, raspberry, vanilla

Flavors: Plum, black cherry, anise, cloves

About Francis Ford Coppola Winery:

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, whose passion for wine, food and adventure is nowhere more evident than in this new production – a winery resort located in the heart of Alexander Valley, California. Among the many attractions at the property, Francis Ford Coppola Winery features a wine tasting bar, two restaurants, swimming pools, a movie gallery, a performing arts pavilion and a park area with game tables and bocce courts.

Francis puts it best, saying the winery is meant to be "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."
