Franci 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 Malbec

While making a film in Argentina, Francis Coppola fell in love with Malbec, Argentina’s most popular varietal. When he returned to the U.S., he asked if we could start producing our own. Not many people in California were making it at the time so we’re proud that we were one of the first California producers to bottle Malbec as a single varietal.

Winemaker's Notes

  • Malbec is less tannic than Cabernet, but more so than Merlot, giving it a powerful structure but smooth mouthfeel. Having produced this varietal for quite a few years now, we’ve perfected our cultivation and winemaking methods, so you get a wine of amazing character and purity. Malbec exudes dark, rich fruit flavors and a unique mineral note that is quite distinct.
  • 2012 was an excellent vintage across California because of steady, mild temperatures that persisted throughout summer. Because we experienced such ideal weather conditions, our fruit was able to develop deep concentration and excellent texture and balance.
