Coppola Diamond Collection Zinfandel Red Label 2009
Can't believe a Zin at this price delivers so much. Has all the key elements that makes a Zin what it is. However, I believe it is the Petite Sirah that gives it the backbone that makes it so good. A great everyday Zin and an essential wine for your outdoor grilling.
Dark ruby color. On the nose lot's of cherries, plum, smoked meat, licorice. On the palate dry, fruity, ripe blackberries, vanilla, spices. Soft tannins, little unusual noticeable acidity, but balances good with jammy, syrupy flavors of this wine. Long, lush finish.
External Reviews for Coppola Diamond Collection Zinfandel Red Label
Winemaker's NotesOur Diamond Collection Zinfandel is crafted by blending fruit from several different appellations, which feature different clone selections, soil types and cultivation methods. We source both hot and cool climate Paso Robles fruit as well as fruit from Sonoma County. By combining these different styles of Zinfandel, we achieve a wine of greater complexity and character. 2009 was an excellent vintage that experienced a mild spring, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. These conditions resulted in profusely aromatic fruit with exceptional weight and balance. We also added an extra layer of complexity by blending in a small amount of Petite Sirah. The resulting wine has a solid structure and mature tannins, which balance Zinfandel's inherently jammy nature. - WineryTasting ProfileAppearance: Red-violetAromas: Crushed raspberries, strawberries, toasted oakFlavors: Briary blackberries, plums, pepper, cloves and colaAppella...
Food Pairings for Coppola Diamond Collection Zinfandel Red Label
The fruit for this wine is grown in diverse regions throughout California. Immense color saturation and intense aromas of sweet, juicy boysenberries set the stage for a wine loaded with lush, jammy fruit, and long, lingering flavors of plums, blackberries, sage and a hint of smoke.
