Winemaker's Notes

This is Francis Coppola's second year producing Diamond Collection Cabernet Sauvignon. For a decade they've bottled Claret — a robust red blend largely comprised of Cabernet — but they wanted to offer a single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon as well in order to show off the elegance of their grapes.

The 2006 growing season was long and cool, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine weeks longer than usual. As a result, this wine has immense concentration, rich color, and profuse aromatics that give way to layers of enduring flavor.

Appearance: Dark garnet

Aromas: Currants, raspberry, vanilla

Flavors: Plum, black cherry, anise, cloves

Rating:
(9/29/2010)
This is on par with a typical $15 Cab Sauv. The wine is balanced fairly well but does not drink well alone...it needs food. I had it with braised shortribs and again with roast chicken and it held up. Without food, the finish comes across bitter; but with food there is a nice level of oak, plum and maybe some cedar back there.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
