Winemaker's Notes:

Diamond Collection Syrah-Shiraz demonstrates remarkable richness and complexity as a result of blending fruit from several Central California appellations. Our San Lucas vineyard, located at the southern end of Monterey County, is characterized by well-drained loamy soils, which produce highly concentrated Syrah that offers luscious berry aromas. Grapes from Paso Robles contribute red fruit flavors, texture and body while the small amount of Petite Sirah from Hames Valley provides our wine with structure. Because crop yields were extremely low in 2008, this year's wine is one of the most intensely concentrated we've produced.

Appearance: Purple magenta.

Aromas: Plums, raspberries, allspice.

Flavors: Strawberries, boysenberries, pepper and cloves.

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."
