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

The Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2012 Zinfandel

Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Our Diamond Collection Zinfandel is crafted by blending fruit from different appellations, clone selections, soil types, and cultivation methods. We use both hot and cool climate Paso Robles fruit, including some from gravely clay loam soils similar to those in Australia’s Barossa Valley. We also use Sonoma County fruit. By combining these different types of Zinfandel and then adding a small amount of Petite Sirah to the blend in order to balance the wine’s jammy nature with added structure, we achieve a wine of greater complexity and character.

Winemaker's Notes

2012 was an excellent vintage across California because of steady, mild temperatures that persisted throughout summer. This ideal climate helped us achieve rich brambly Zinfandel fruit layered with peppery spice notes and a velvety texture.
