Winemaker's Notes:

Made with fruit grown entirely in the Dry Creek Valley appellation, this unique Zinfandel includes small amounts of Petite Sirah. Half of the fruit is crushed whole, and the must is fermented in open-top fermenters for maximum color extraction and flavor enhancement. The wine is aged in French oak, which adds the essence of toasted spice and French vanilla to heady aromas of rum raisin, black currant, and red cherry.

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."
