2017 Francis Coppola Diamond California Zinfandel

92 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A fruity and spicy California Zinfandel. this elegant and medium-bodied expression is red-fruited with spicey, almost floral characters (from the small Petite Syrah component?). Shows the potential of Zinfandel for almost feminine wines that won't require a roaring fireplace or a rich meal to make sense - great drinking for anyone, even Pinot Noir drinkers.

Its Origins

What makes their Diamond Collection Zinfandel unique is that it’s crafted by blending fruit from different appellations, clone selections, soil types and cultivation methods. By embracing this diversity they achieve a wine that has a great deal of complexity and more texture on the palate. This year’s blend includes both hot and cool climate Paso Robles fruit as well as a selection of fruit from Sonoma County. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to the blend in order to balance the wine’s jammy nature with added structure.
