Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Our Merlot combines fruit from Napa, Sonoma and Monterey. The flavors and textures unique to each region harmonize perfectly 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.
External Reviews for Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Coppola blush wine shows cool-climate acidity and a fine minerality that make it racy and clean. There also are long hangtime hints of raspberries and strawberries. It s a fine rose to drink with bouillabaisse. From Francis Ford Coppola.
Here's an impressive Cab from Francis Ford Coppola. His Director's line showcases the quality and forward drinkablility of Sonoma County fruit. Cabernet grapes are sourced from throughout Sonoma's famous sub-regions including Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Valley and more. Literally dozens of lots are then vinified separately. The final blend is then aged 14 months in French and American oak barrels, 40% new. Of course the outstanding 2010 vintage doesn't hurt but this wine show brilliant fruit concentration, supple tannins and delightful hints of toast and vanilla. Another Oscar worthy effort from Francis Ford Coppola at a great price.
