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 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. To create a light, fresh Sauvignon Blanc that displays good balance and vibrant flavors, we blend grapes from three locations: Alexander Valley, Sonoma Valley and Lake County. Alexander Valley fruit provides a core of citrus and juicy tropical fruit flavors. The high elevation volcanic soils of Lake County contribute pretty floral notes and the Sonoma Valley grapes boast distinct mineral nuances. To capture the varietal’s aromatic qualities, the wine is fermented and finished in stainless steel

Winemaker's Notes

2013 was an excellent vintage across California. There was very little rain that year and temperatures never got excessively warm for any period of time. These dry conditions produced intensely flavored fruit with a more pronounced range of complexity than in years past. On the palate, there is a crisp attack, followed by a harmonious balance with some soft sweetness. The body is light with supple consistency, and the length is generous with a fresh finish that creates a very elegant Sauvignon Blanc.
