Winemaker's Notes:

Francis Coppola grew up with wine on the family table because his grandfather and uncles made homemade wine in the basement of their New York apartment. Using grapes that had been shipped in by train car from California, the family was able to make wines in simple concrete vats.

Francis Coppola Presents Shiraz 2007 has velvety smooth layers of pure fruit and aromatic spices. Medium-bodied with ripe, smooth tannins, this lush easy-drinking red wine pairs perfectly with baby back ribs, mushroom cheddar burgers, or pasta with pesto sauce.

Appearance: Dark magenta.

Aromas: Crushed raspberries, cloves, cinnamon, and a touch of cola.

Flavors: Cherries, blackberries and plum, sweet oak, and a peppery edge.

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."
