Francis Ford Coppola Winery Rosso & Bianco Shiraz 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

• We source our Shiraz from two warms appellations: Paso Robles and Lodi. Our Lodi fruit is particularly unique because the vineyards there receive no irrigation. • We add small amounts of Viognier to our Shiraz to elicit delicate floral qualities, a technique that originated in France long ago but is now used frequently in Australia and the U.S. • Both French and American oak are used for added complexity; French oak contributes notes of vanilla, and American oak accentuates the spice nuances that Shiraz is known for.

Being new to the Shiraz market I enjoyed this new experience. The wine was full bodied and deeply flavorful. For the price, this Shiraz is worth your time. Enjoy.
