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.
