Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Zinfandel is made to be as gregarious and opulent as one would expect from this variety. The Diamond Zinfandel's charm is its spicy ripe flavors and aromas of red berries and jammy black fruits. The palate is full with sweet fruit flavors and exotic spices. The Zinfandel is aged in American oak barrels for eight months, integrating a creamy richness of brown sugar and maple syrup. We have blended Petite Sirah for a deep, intense color and mid-palate structure, while the addition of a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure, tannins, and a lengthy finish. The 1999 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Red Label Zinfandel is enjoyable now or can be cellared for two to five years.

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."
