Voluptuous body with supple tannins. Bursting with red and black fruit notes, toasted spices, and an intriguing floral nuance.
The 2015 Diamond Collection Claret is a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot grapes. These grapes were harvested from the Coppola estate and other vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma, and El Dorado. This combination of climates resulted in a great complexity and an excellent balance for the wine.

Nicely concentrated, smoothly polished and with good structure, this wine balances power and grip with a graceful mouthfeel and ripe but not overripe black-cherry flavors. Packaged with a wrap of gold netting, this wine has moderate tannins and medium to full body, so it will be enjoyable on all kinds of occasions.See detailed press review

Modern, plush, chocolaty.
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and inspired by name Claret--a term used in reference to Bordelaise-type red wines.
