    Winemaker Notes

    Full-bodied and explosive on the palate, the 2016 Eleanor offers decadence and impressive depth. A warm, spicy fragrance heady with scents of leather, tobacco, cocoa, and wild berries is followed by succulent impressions of plums, black cherries, and anise. The wine’s richness carries through to the finish, where intriguing notes of lavender and minerals appear. This vintage will continue to evolve in the bottle for another 3-5 years if you have the patience.

    Blend: 49% Sonoma County Syrah; 38% Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon; 13% Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

    This wine pairs well with Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese Butter, Slow Cooker Beef with Pasta & Porcini, Braised Beef Short Ribs with Pancetta & Crimini Mushrooms.

    Francis Ford Coppola Winery, California
    Francis Ford Coppola Winery Winery Video

    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."

    California is a winemaking colossus; by itself it is the fourth largest producer in the world. Red wine accounts for 56% of the total by volume, and red grapes 63% of total acres planted. In addition, a number of California red wines are heralded as being among the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse geography, soils and microclimates allow for a wide array of styles, the key factor unifying California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season. This leads to well-developed fruit marked both by impressive ripeness and balancing acidity.

    The state’s most famous red wine region, of course, is Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king. But California boasts a wealth of other impressive appellations. The much larger and climatically varied Sonoma County also produces world class California Cabernet, along with wonderful examples of California Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.

    Fine versions of Cabernet and Zinfandel hail from Paso Robles as well, which is also gaining fame with Rhone varietals like Syrah and Grenache. As for Pinot Noir, terrific examples can be found from AVA’s such as Anderson Valley, Carneros, Santa Lucia Highlands and Sta. Rita Hills. Wineries in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties are making wonderful Syrahs, and the Sierra Foothill appellations are proving to be an experimental hotbed, with Italian and Spanish varietals employed to great effect.

    This of course is a mere sketch. The subject of California red wine is as deep and broad as an ocean, and absolutely a joy to explore!
