Winemaker's Notes:

The 2000 Diamond Series Zinfandel has all of the personality and complexity that one would expect from a California Zinfandel. The aromas are dominated by inviting ripe, red currants with exotic spice overtones. The palate is soft, concentrated, and filled with luscious black currants. While the tannins are moderate, the supple texture upholds the core fruit and provides a lengthy finish to the wine. For a deep, intense color and mid-palate structure, we have blended in a small percentage of Petite Sirah. This wine partners well with spicy pasta dishes, like rigatoni pasta with arrabbiata sauce or with strong cheeses, such as Reblochon or Muenster. The 2000 Diamond Series Red Label Zinfandel can be enjoyed now and will cellar nicely over the next 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."
