Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Zinfandel
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
|Brand||Francis Ford Coppola|
This Zinfandel is unique in that it’s blended with the best selections of Petite Sirah. Even though the Zinfandel from this terrific vintage showed great complexity on its own, Petite Sirah was added to enhance the structure of the wine. A combination of French and American oak enhanced the fruit’s spice qualities, giving the wine some shoulders as well. The 2014 Director’s Cut Zinfandel demonstrates a lush full body and velvety palate. Scents of blackberries, cherries, cloves, black pepper and oak are followed by flavors of black currants and raspberries that are enlivened with intriguing notes of bramble, anise, and spices.
