Wasn't very good as far as zinfandels go. Too acidic and not enough fruit flavor.

90/100 points. Vibrant bouquet of ripe red fruits with a hint cantaloupe and spice. Deep red color fading to rose and clear at the edges. The body of this wine is displayed with a great onset of lemongrass, black currant, and blackberry. This fades into a mild orange/citrus flavor on the back end. Excellent tannins allow for a fantastic mouth feel that holds out for a strong finish. Mild oaking allows for the quality grapes to express their full potential. I would expect nothing less from a Francis Coppola wine.

"Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Attractive black cherry fruit combines with a touch of sandalwood and whiffs of dried walnuts and caramelly oak in the wine's aromas

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Attractive black cherry fruit combines with a touch of sandalwood and whiffs of dried walnuts and caramelly oak in the wine's aromas, and similarly cast flavors make a good impression on the palate. With a supple texture and but modest tannins that provide some needed grip, this wine is ready to try today alongside grilled burgers.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

90 PTS WILFRED WONG. A substantial effort, the fine '07 Francis Ford Coppola is a real winner! Loaded with ripe berry flavors with an alluring accent of dust; drinks exceptionally well now.

Winemaker's notes:We chose to make a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon rather than blend in other varietals so that we could create a real terroir wine with pure varietal flavor. As a result, the Director's Cut Cabernet delivers enticing aromas of cola, cherry, and eucalyptus before revealing dark, rich berries, cassis and clack cherries, which is typical of fruit grown in the illustrious Alexander Valley.

Powerful and dramatic, with expansive aromas ranging from concentrated, slightly jammy blackberry fruits to scents of white pepper, bound with sweet toasty oak. The palate is soft and supple with fleshy dense fruit. It finishes with round, luscious tannins.

"Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon Directors 2007 is usually medium to full bodied with a fine structure that supports black and red fruit flavors with typical notes of olive

Smooth, subtle, and silky; ripe blackberry, fat aromatic blueberry and a medium weight. Perfect with a Tuscan pork tenderloin wrapped in fresh rosemary sprigs.

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMA K ER’S NOT ES We typically harvest Pinot Noir grapes for our Sofia Rosé at a lower brix to ensure a light wine that pairs elegantly with food. Immediately after being picked, the grapes are brought into the winery, crushed and destemmed. For color extraction, the grapes are cold soaked for 48 hours before the juice is separated from the skins. Then, we ferment at a cool temperature in order to retain the crisp acidity that is critical for this style of wine. TA S TING NOT ES The 2007 Sofia Rosé displays a vibrant fuchsia color and an alluring perfume of wild strawberries and rose petals. Bright and refreshing on the palate, this wine offers lively flavors of red cherries, raspberries and candied orange peel. © 2007 Francis Ford Coppola Presents, LLC, world rights reserved. www.ffcpresents.com 200-20074 APPELL ATION: Sonoma Coast BLEND: 100% Pinot Noir ALCOHOL: 11.5% by volume RESIDUAL SUGAR: Dry
