FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA, DIAMOND COLLECTION MALBEC 2012
This product is currently sold out.
Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Pinot Grigio is a delicate varietal that can’t withstand too much sun and needs to be picked at precisely the right moment. When it’s just right, it bestows citrus notes, tropical fruit flavors, and pretty floral nuances you don’t find in other white varietals. To capture its personality without altering it with oak, we ferment and finish our Pinot Grigio entirely in stainless steel.
Malbec is less tannic than Cabernet, but more so than Merlot, giving it a powerful structure but smooth mouthfeel. Having produced this varietal for quite a few years now, we’ve perfected our cultivation and winemaking methods, so you get a wine of amazing character and purity. Malbec exudes dark, rich fruit flavors and a unique mineral note that is quite distinct. 2012 was an excellent vintage across California because of steady, mild temperatures that persisted throughout summer. Because we experienced such ideal weather conditions, our fruit was able to develop deep concentration and excellent texture and balance.
