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.

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.
