Coppola Diamond Petite Sirah 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Wine & Spirits: Round and soft, with sweet fruit and eucalyptus notes, this is a zin to pour with slow-braised pork. (Feb 2011) 89% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah. A Zinfandel that pushes the envelope of decadence with voluptuous, concentrated flavors of fruit jam, chocolate and vanilla.

  Francis Ford Coppola’s love for wine didn’t just sprout up overnight. His grandfather, Agostino Coppola, had a passion for wine back in the 1920s, when he used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment. They weren’t sophisticated wines: they were just everyday wines that anyone could enjoy. Francis and Eleanor Coppola, Francis’ wife, attempted to continue this passion when they purchased their own vineyard in Rutherford, California in 1975 using the proceeds from The Godfather. This plot was a part of the historic Inglenook Winery, and it included the former home of Gustave Niebaum, member of the Culinary Institute of America’s Vintner’s Hall of Fame. After tireless effort by the whole family, the winery produced its first vintage in 1977 under the Niebaum-Coppola label. After many years of success, the family purchased Inglenook Winery in its entirety in 1995. In 2006, the winery was renamed to Rubicon Estate Winery in honor of the estate’s flagship wine. The Coppola family couldn’t stop there - in March 2006, they purchased the former Chateau Souverain winery in Geyserville, California, transforming it into the Francis Ford Coppola Winery. In their first four years, their family of wines exploded from 12 to 45 wines. Corey Beck was made the director of wine-making and the general manager of the winery, and he currently oversees seven wine brands. There are currently 9 lines of wine, each with a different personality and varietal composition. The Sofia line, for example, was created as a gift from Francis to his daughter, and it exudes charm, style, and romance. Read less

Nice garnet color. Black cherry, pepper and raspberry nose. Spicy but with good black fruits. Decent length on the finish. Not bad.

Comparable to the St. Francis Old Vines Zin from Sonoma County. Coppola knows how to get a wine done properly. Director's cut rocks the under $20 Zin bin. Funny thing is, Rosenblum gets it done for half the price!

It's wrong those grapes percentages: Blend: 92% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Primitivo

Exudes a brilliant ruby color and intense aromas of ripe red currants, exotic spices and cregrave;me brucirc;legrave;e. Flavors of raspberry, blackberry and luscious dark fruit fill the palate, while a hint of cracked black pepper enlivens the smooth finish. Enjoy this wine on its own or serve it with braised ribs or wild mushroom risotto.

Cranberry, wild, untamed raspberry and brambleberry notes are shaded with mocha, pepper spice and toasty vanilla. Find out for yourself why zinfandel and BBQ ribs are a match made in mouthwatering heaven.

We blended our Zinfandel with a small amount of Petite Sirah. Half the fruit was crushed whole berry and the must is fermented in open-top fermenters for eight days, with punch downs three times a day, to ensure maximum flavor and color extraction.

A fun Zinfandel that's jammy and juicy, with aromas of blackberry cobbler and spice and ripe flavors that offer just enough complexity to keep this interesting. Drink now.

Polished and elegant, Coppola Diamond Series Red Label Zinfandel offers gorgeous aromas of red berries and spice with a deep, briery flavor and supple finish.

Aromas are dominated by inviting ripe, red currants with exotic spice overtones. The palate is soft, concentrated, and filled with luscious black currants.
