Francis Co Shiraz 2008
Editorial Reviews for Francis Co Shiraz
Slightly herbal and cocoa-dusted on the nose, this shows an almost floral sweetness to the aromas of beefy, plummy fruit. A bit thick on entry, this is soft and a bit fat. Fills your mouth with plush, dark berry and lightly baked plum fruit, accented with a hint of baking spices, vanilla and caramel. It’s an easy drinking, fairly intense wine suited for the cocktail set. 84pts
Succulent sweet Aromas of raspberries and strawberry cheesecake. Red fruit on palate some red apples, easy drinking, smooth flavors, mild acidity, loads of fruitiness but an even keel Love the nose
Blue fruit on the nose, a little floral, med bodied, perfumey Not very lengthy, but fits the bill
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Light, fruity, kind of flat. It's okay.
More Syrah than Merlot. Not enough depth.
Very fresh. Roses,raspberries and ripe strawberries with a pleasant finish. Great rose color. Beautiful presentation!
Rich, fruity and elegantly textured. Rich plum color. Full bodied, with aromas of cherries, strawberry. Very warm and round with subtle notes of chocolate, vanilla and jammy fruit flavors on the palate. Soft tannins, smooth finish. I like my Merlot with meat, cheese or...chocolate! Cheers!

I tried this wine one evening over at a friendrsquo;s house with salisbury steak. Wow! For the price, it is a steal! Diamond is sourced from several locations for specific flavor components the winemaker is interested in bringing out from the terroir. The result of his meticulous selection process is a sweet, fruit forward, very aromatic Merlot. It has a nice acidity that can cut through meat in an instant. Being aged in French oak, sweet vanilla is intermingled throughout. They blend a small amount of Syrah and Petite Sirah to give it that intense color. It is a must try with meatloaf, veal osso bucco or a black and bleu salad.
The color of purple velvet, this wine gives off aromas of sweet blueberries and vanilla. Warm spice notes throughout accent the ripe berries that are surrounded by soft, smooth tannins.
Ripe berry and spice, rounded with soft tannins and vanilla, highlight this rich, deep purple Cabernet.

Our Merlot combines fruit from Napa, Sonoma, and Monterey. The flavors and textures unique to each region harmonize beautifully together to create a wine that has dark, succulent fruit balanced by natural acidity. Intense aromatics of raspberry and blueberry lead to flavors of crushed berries, vanilla, and leather, which are wrapped up in a soft, smooth tannin structure.
Francis Ford Coppola, the famous director of The godfather, was one of the first celebrities in Hollywood to get into the wine business. Not just a hobbyist, he has committed himself to producing some outstanding wines. This raspberry-scented beauty is a bright, fruit-driven Merlot. It displays a sense of majesty with its richness, its mocha-tinged plushness, and its seamless texture. Itrsquo;s the best Merlot you can get for less that $25. As they say, wersquo;ll make you an offer you canrsquo;t refuse.
Aromas of berries and blackberry pie from the fruit stand out in the nose and integrate with the stylish toasty quality from the oak. On the palate, the identifiable raspberry and dense blue, jammy fruit flavors combine with the winersquo;s elegant structure to support the stylish and lengthy finish.
