    Francis Ford Coppola has a long family history with wine making. He was first exposed to the wine making process while growing up in New York.

TASTING PROFILE Appearance: Purple magenta Aromas: Blueberry, cherry, cinnamon, tobacco leaves Flavors: Blackberry, cassis, anise, toasted woods

  • Winemaking notes

    The 2014 growing season was extremely dry and warm. Sunny summer days ripened the fruit ahead of schedule, setting us up for an unusually early harvest. When the fruit was brought in, it showed wonderful concentration, great palate density and a good balance of natural acidity.

    Natalie MacLean, August 2016

    Smoky, dark and brooding Californian red wine like winemaker (and director) Francis Coppola’s Dracula movie. Full-bodied and smooth with black plums and toasty oak. Coppola’s Merlot grapes grow in select vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and Monterey. Full-bodied Californian red wine. Pair this wine with grilled pork chops and movie night.
