Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Merlot 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
|Brand||Francis Ford Coppola|
Diamond Collection Merlot derives its complexity and lush concentration by blending fruit from three diverse appellations including Paso Robles, Sonoma and Monterey County. A silky and vibrant California Merlot. Sourced from the same core of Merlot grape-growers since premiere vintage in 1997. Cherry, cassis, graphite, and mocha flavors. Blueberry, currant, anise, and toasted oak aromas. This vintage experienced a long growing season, which resulted in rich, concentrated fruit with pronounced spice notes. Our 2017 Diamond Collection Merlot offers lushness offset by a lovely framework of toasted woods and subtle tannins that harmonize with the wine's ripe, dark fruit nuances. Pairs well with New York Steak, Pasta Primavera, Grilled Tuna.
