81% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah
There are two techniques for growing Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley. One consists of traditional farming practices and includes the dry-farming of mature vines that are head-trained, spur-pruned, and severely thinned in the spring to produce low yields. The other method utilizes bilateral cordon spur-pruning, onwire trellising, drop irrigation, and carefully manicured canopies. Coppola source their Zinfandel grapes from bench lands and hillsides, vineyards that are farmed both ways. The combination produces fruit with intensely concentrated flavour.
What The Critics Say
97/100 and Zinfandel Trophy, San Francisco International Wine Competition (2014 vintage)
Parker's Wine Advocate, Robert Parker (2013 vintage)
"The 2013 Zinfandel Director’s Cut has peppery, earthy, spicy notes as well as plenty of black cherries and berries. The wine cuts a nice swath across the palate, is medium to full-bodied, gutsy and ideal for drinking over the next 5-8 years."
Wine Enthusiast (2013 vintage)
"Petite Sirah and Syrah are included in this intensely fruity wine, aged for one year in French and American oak, 25% of it new. Aromas and flavors of barbecue smoke provide a hint of char, offset by the background sweetness of vanilla."
