Filmmaking and Winemaking Intersect in Sonoma
In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for wine “director” Corey Beck to craft wines that would reflect his own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine. Corey’s vision for Director’s Cut embraces appellation-specific sourcing, meticulous fruit selection, and numerous blending trials so that our wines capture the distinct nuances of Sonoma’s microclimates in a highly refined style well-suited to fine cuisine and premium wine lists.

Marine influences shape the climate of Alexander Valley, resulting in warm days and cool nights. Soil diversity creates unique growing conditions in Alexander Valley; with red volcanic soils on the eastern hillsides; alluvial gravel fans on the valley floor; and steep slopes of rocky clay loam on the west part of the valley.
Concentrated but well focused, this wine offers vibrancy and balance that offsets its weight. Best with a few years of aging, but can be enjoyed now with 1 to 2 hours of decanting.
