Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Diamond Merlot is a rich magenta color. Aromas of boysenberries, anise and cedar. Flavors of black currant, crème de cassis, plums, dark chocolate and spices.

2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. These amazing conditions resulted in a richly textured Merlot that's abundantly flavorful and perfectly balanced by supple tannins and notes of spice and oak.

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."
