Winemaking has been a Coppola family tradition for several generations. Agostino Coppola, Francis Coppola’s grandfather, used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment building using concrete vats he constructed himself. The wines that Francis Coppola makes today aren’t the same as those Agostino made, but they are produced in the same spirit—for sharing with friends and family.
Coppola’s signature red wine, layered with flavours of blackberry, cassis and roasted espresso. Claret is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine, blended in the classic Bordeaux style is alluring and sophisticated. It is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavours of wild berries, plum and anise.
Diamond Collection wines are made from grapes grown across California and are carefully combined to create wines perfect for all occasions – including those special just because ones. Since its inception, Claret has been the crown jewel of the Diamond Collection. Crafted as a Bordeaux-style blend, this popular wine reflects a diversity of vineyards whose soils contribute to its complexity. The label honours the first Cabernet Sauvignon blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. The blend varies according to vintage, though is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine spends 12 months in oak.
This is a very good wine. I am going to buy another bottle or two because I like it so much.
