2019 Francis Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Director's Cut
Francis Ford Coppola actually knows three families of wines. Each with its own characteristics. The Diamond collection are actually the entry wines and are among the most popular Coppola wines. The Directors Cut series is Coppola's top series. The most beautiful fruit has a long upbringing and a relatively limited supply and from relatively small areas. The Director series is the middle segment and for us personally one of the most beautiful series. As with the Directors Cut, the wines come from Sonoma, but the Director Series was created when the winemaker set out to create a range of wines that reflected his own artistic interpretation of the Sonoma County appellation. The Director's wines use fruit from several Sonoma County vineyards, each with its own climate and terroir. The wines from the Directors series are characterized by lush, ripe fruit, a light silky texture and soft, supple tannins. Coppola's Director's wines showcase Sonoma County's unique character and style.
The Sonoma Coast Director's Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from several vineyards throughout the appellation. The region is known for the influx of daily fog and sea breezes that add to the complexity of this wine and is a gift from nature. The Directors Series Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon comes from several vineyards in the Sonoma county appellation and has a very small percentage of Cabernet Franc and Syrah added to add even more complexity to the wine. The wine is aged in oak (70% French and 30% American - in total 25% new barrels have been used). The Director Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing aromas and flavors of plum, currant, cocoa and spice with lingering notes of vanilla toasted oak. Round and ripe on the palate with supple tannins. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to a burger topped with blue cheese, Turkey pot pie or a spicy lentil stew.
