Francis Ford Coppola Winery Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is the latest addition to the brand’s Diamond Collection.
Sourced from the Creston District, San Juan Creek and Highland counties, this is the first wine from the collection to be sourced solely from Paso Robles.
“One of the great joys tasting wine is discovering how the expression of a grape can change from place to place: the color, the aroma, the texture, the flavor,” says Gary Sitton, VP of winemaking, “Paso Robles is a warm growing region, with relatively low annual rainfall and a diverse mixture of soil types. With its distinctive flavor profile, it is a perfect complement to the Coppola family of Cabernets: our Classic Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon and our best-selling Diamond Claret.”
Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of black fruits, coffee, almond and vanilla on the nose, the company reports. Concentrated ripe stone fruits meet a hint of toasted oak on the palate. Small amounts of Petit Verdot provide spice and color, while Petite Sirah contributes depth of flavor, color and concentration.
Aged for 10 months over French oak barrels, this wine is 13.5% ABV and a match for winter pairings like holiday roasts, mashed potatoes and cheese plates with sharp and aged cheeses.
The suggested retail price is $21 per 750-ml. bottle.
