Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Zinfandel 2013


SKU 33162


Our Zinfandel is unique in that it's blended with one of our favorite selections of Petite Sirah. Even though the Zinfandel from this terrific vintage showed great complexity on its own, we added Petite Sirah to enhance the structure of the wine. A combination of French and American oak enhanced the fruit's spice qualities, giving the wine some shoulders as well. The 2013 Director's Cut Zinfandel demonstrates a lush full body and velvety palate. Scents of blackberries, cherries, cloves, black pepper and oak are followed by flavors of black currants and raspberries that are enlivened with intriguing notes of bramble, anise, and spices.

Wine AdvocateThe 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 EnthusiastPetite 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.
