Francis Coppola Diamomd Collection
" The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. I designed a new label reminiscent of this old bottle and created the Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, which is our company’s most recognized offering. Today, Diamond Collection includes 13 varietals, each identified with a brightly colored label. The quality and authenticity of Diamond Collection is extremely important because we are a family company and our name is on the label. As such, you can trust that we’ll always give you the very best." Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2015 Claret Cabernet Sauvignon

Diamond Collection Claret typically includes some combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec to create a prestige Bordeaux-style blend, bottled with gold netting in the way Europe’s finest wines were once presented. Claret fruit is grown in a range of vineyards from diverse locations resulting in greater complexity. This vintage the majority of fruit came from Solano, El Dorado, and Lake counties, appellations that feature volcanic soils and higher elevations.

Winemaker's Notes

We came off an early vintage in 2014 only to have an even earlier season in 2015. Limited rainfall in the spring reduced yields and contributed to fruit with very good concentration. Our 2015 Diamond Claret offers voluptuous body and supple tannins with loads of red and black fruits, toasted spices, and an intriguing floral nuance.
