In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for wine “director” Corey Beck to craft wines that would reflect his own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine. Corey’s vision for Director’s Cut embraces appellation-specific sourcing, meticulous fruit selection, and numerous blending trials so that our wines capture the distinct nuances of Sonoma’s mesoclimates in a highly refined style well suited to fine cuisine and premium wine lists.
After the grapes are pressed, we utilize open-top fermenters and punch the cap down several times a day for extraction. When fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in a combination of new and used French oak barrels; racking occurs several times throughout the maturation process. Our 2013 Pinot Noir boasts a rich, velvety texture, good structure, and complex aromatics reminiscent of cherries, violets, and star anise. Deep, dark flavors of black plums and wild strawberries emerge along with nuances of Chai spices, tea leaves, and bergamot, creating a really sensuous and fragrant wine.
