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 2012 Claret Cabernet Sauvignon

Diamond Collection Claret typically includes some combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. We harvest grapes from our own estate as well as other Napa, Sonoma and El Dorado vineyards. This combination of climates results in great complexity and excellent balance. In fact, we joke that our Black Label Claret has a problem offering itself for far less than it deserves. It’s a premium wine at a popular price and it has set the bar for the quality of the entire brand. The bottle is distinguished with gold netting in order to convey its prestigious status, a tribute to the way Europe’s finest wines were once presented.

Winemaker's Notes

2012 was an excellent vintage across California due to the steady, mild temperatures during the summer months. This consistency helped the grapes mature gradually and develop deeply concentrated fruit with complex aromatics, excellent body, and supple tannins.
