Francis Ford Coppola Zinfandel Blend California Rosso 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Francis Coppola grew up with wine on the family table because his grandfather and uncles made homemade wine in the basement of their New York apartment. Using grapes that had been shipped in by train car from California, the family was able to make wines in simple concrete vats. According to Uncle Mikey, these weren’t fancy wines, but pleasurable everyday wines. Francis Coppola Presents Rosso and Bianco capture the essence of casual, easy-drinking wines that say ‘welcome home.’ Wine Facts: • Diverse California growing regions were selected for their distinct microclimates in order to create a blend that is well-balanced. • Fruit from the Lodi region, which has been a recognized AVA since 1986, benefits from the cool delta breezes that control the warm daytime temperatures and keep grape physiology in optimum balance. • Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are sourced from Lodi and Paso Robles, demonstrate ripe, concentrated flavors. • The Syrah in this blend provides deep color and body without excess tannin along with flavors of black fruit and sweet mocha; Cabernet Sauvignon helps build the structure and contributes flavors of currant and red fruit.
