Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Claret 2018
Since its inception, Claret has been the crown jewel of the Diamond Collection. Crafted as a Bordeaux-style blend, this year’s wine reflects a diversity of vineyards whose soils contribute to the wine’s complexity. Dark and luscious, the 2018 Diamond Collection Claret delivers rich extraction, fragrant aromas of anise and caramel notes. Supple tannins, with flavors of blueberry, roasted coffee, mocha, black currants, and light tobacco, and sophisticated character. The palate is enhanced by a full body and long finish.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot, 1% Petite Sirah
This wine pairs with a blue cheese burger, grilled lamb chops, or a roasted herb turkey.
