Francis Ford Coppola Zinfandel Blend California Rosso 2011
Ah yes. something I picked up from my local Trader Joe's--not exactly knowing what I was getting into. Initial impressions were not good, but it grew on me. The astringent qualities evened out and became to really appreciate the fruity and thick depths of it. Yes. I wine I could drink again.Add winemaker's notes

Zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and petit syrah. Very fruity almost sweet. 13.5% Alcohol. Not really my thing. Maybe it needs to age more?
I see nothing wrong with this fruit bomb. Well made, complex and delicious.
A great rich Zin. Don't be discouraged by the "famous" name, this is a great Zin.
Rich boysenberry jam with some spice and an (enjoyable) particulate/pepper-flake feel. Followed a Bogle Petite Sirah 2006 quite well.
External Reviews for Francis Ford Coppola Zinfandel Blend California Rosso
An Italianate red from Francis Ford Coppola. Made from a delicious blend of fruity red grapes, this wine complements a broad range of simple dishes. Drink it with anything that calls for an honest, hearty red.
Wine Tasting NotesSourced from 'old vines' in Amador County and cooler vineyards in Paso Robles and Sonoma, our Zinfandel has exceptional depth and complexity. Petite Sirah is blended in to further enhance the luscious strawberry jam, cassis, and briar flavors that follow its perfume of dark fruit, sweet spice, and toasty vanilla.
