Winemaker's Notes:

While our Claret is a red blend crafted in the style of a Bordeaux, our new Diamond Red Blend, is a unique "sky's the limit" kind of blend, created exclusively by taste with no particular roadmap in mind. Inspired by Scarlet O'Hara of Gone With the Wind, a cinematic masterpiece, a story of hope, survival, and love that transcends life's most tumultuous events. Her role, at the center of it all, a complicated heroine with a rebellious personality, a woman who left such a lasting impression on audiences that she became an American icon. Like its namesake, Scarlet Label Red Blend is complex, tempestuous, and alluring. It has all the sophistication and refinement of Scarlet O'Hara, but a bold presence and rich, spicy nuances that make it anything but demure. Made from a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine offers true distinction. That's what makes Scarlet Label Diamond Red Blend poised to be another classic, just like the Scarlet it is named after.

Blend: 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot, 16% Petite Sirah, 12% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 8% Zinfandel

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."
