Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, as its British-derived name implies, is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine created in the same style as classic Bordeaux. We use all five Bordeaux varietals in the blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot and harvest grapes from Napa and Sonoma as well as the warmer El Dorado region.The 2006 Claret is supple and rich with smooth tannins, ripe berry flavors and seductive aromas. Create a classic pairing by serving it with roasted lamb or a petite filet with Gorgonzola butter.Tasting ProfileAppearance Dark inky magentaAromas Plum, blackberry, mocha and crème bruléeFlavors Crushed wild berries, cassis, vanilla and exotic spicesCorey Beck, WinemakerAppellation CaliforniaBlend 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Cabernet FrancAlcohol 13.8%Total Acid .56pH 3.73Barrel Regimen 12-14 months in French oakReleased January, 2008

Wine Tasting NotesOur Diamond Series Claret offers broad aromas of sandalwood, spice, and red currants followed by layers of engaging black currant, berry, and dark chocolate flavors. Hints of sweet vanilla framed by luxurious, elegant tannins highlight the wine's lengthy finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2006 Diamond Claret was a Gold Medal Winner at both the Long Beach Grand Cru Wine Competition AND the California State Fair Wine Competition!How did we "raise the bar" on our new Claret? Click here to see what winemaker Corey Beck has to say.The 2006 vintage marks the first year we produced Claret at our new home in Sonoma County. This is the first year we blended in fruit from Rosso & Bianco winery, sourcing Merlot and Cabernet Franc from our Estate vines in Geyserville.
