Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley
|Francis Ford Coppola
This vintage's Cabernet Sauvignon is quite opulent with deep, dark flavors of fruit framed by firm tannins and rich oak character. Full-bodied and beautifully textured, this wine's flavor complexity is heightened by the addition of Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy a luscious palate of blackberries, cherries, and cassis along with fragrant earthy minerals and notes of anise and cocoa. As the flavors build and flow, a toasted caramel impression at the end creates an alluring finish. Best with a few years of aging, but you can enjoy this wine now with 1 to 2 hours of decanting. Flavors of clove, tobacco, toasted wood, and caramel. Aromas of ripe cherry, anise, lavender, and boysenberry pie. Pairs well with prime rib, New York strip and filet mignon.
