Coppola Director’s Cut Cinema 2017
Coppola Director’s Cut Cinema is composed of each vintage of Sonoma County fruit; Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. With the vast understanding of the diverse profiles of different selections of single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for many years, the Coppola winemakers know which work best when blended together. Those who are fans of Super Tuscans will enjoy the exotic spice character as well as the juicy fruit impressions of blackberries, cherries, currants, anise and cigar box. The palate has a soft, elegant entry provided by the Zinfandel, while the mid-palate offers rich, bold flavors of cassis courtesy of our Cabernet Sauvignon. Lengthy tannins from our Petite Sirah hold everything together for a dramatic finish.
Coppola Director’s Cut Cinema is a blend of 51% Zinfandel, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Syrah.
The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but after a mild spring, temperatures heated up and remained quite warm throughout summer and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, which led to excellent concentration and high-quality fruit.
This interesting bottle of red is named after the version of a film that most reflects the director’s vision, Director’s Cut wines represent the winemaker’s vision of varietal wines, which express true appellation character.
In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for the winemakers to craft wines that would reflect their own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine.
In another episode of “Nobody Asked“, my favourite cut of my favourite movie is of course this popular scene from Titanic. This bottle goes extremely well with this romantic stay-in 90s movie night.
