Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 95% Zinfandel and 5% Petite Syrah.

This wine is dark fuchsia in appearance and with notes of briary blackberry, strawberry and toasted vanilla on the nose. Juicy plums, wild berries and sweet spices dance on the palate.

Our Sonoma County vineyards provide exceptionally high-quality fruit, which ripens evenly and exudes immense character and flavor. To add an extra layer of complexity, we blend a small amount of Petite Sirah into the wine. This contributes to the wine's structure and lends a bit of tannin to balance out Zinfandel's inherently "jammy" nature.

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."
