Winemaker's Notes:

The 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.

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."
