Diamond Collection Claret

“The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar
of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. We didn’t really know what Claret was but
learned it was the British name for Cabernet blends. I liked the word Claret because the definition
implied something that was clear and pure, but I was discouraged from using the term because
people wouldn’t know what it meant. Despite opposition, we created a red blend and launched
the Diamond Collection with Black Label Claret as our flagship wine."

Director's Cut Zinfandel

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 microclimates in a highly refined style well suited to fine cuisine and premium wine lists.

Archimedes

A luxurious Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, delivering immensely concentrated flavors of black cherries and juicy red plums.
The discoveries of the Greek mathematician Archimedes nearly 2,000 years ago established laws of physics still viable today. Francis Coppola’s grandfather, Agostino, so greatly admired the intellect and ingenuity of the mathematician that he gave his first son the same name. Today, we pay homage to Coppola’s Uncle Archimedes with our new flagship wine.

Archimedes is a Cabernet Sauvignon that derives its alluring spice quality from the small amount of very unique Knights Valley Cabernet Franc that is added to the blend. This fruit is highly aromatic and extremely dark, which is atypical of the varietal. We use a significant amount of Cabernet Sauvignon from our own Estate and additional lots from Alexander Valley and Knights Valley vineyards we find particularly impressive, well concentrated, and distinct. We get very bright cherry notes from the Alexander Valley fruit, and darker fruit impressions from the Knights Valley grapes. The final wine is created by selecting the best blend from individual barrels within each lot. This accounts for Archimedes’ tremendous complexity.

Company details

"I've always been influenced by the idea of Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, which was the inspiration for ultimately all modern amusements parks. I remember the beautiful theater pavilions with the curtains painted with peacock feathers that had little ballet performances. At Tivoli, there were rides, but more important than the rides were the cafes and the refreshments, and just the sense of being in a children’s garden, a ‘pleasure garden’ for all people to enjoy – which perhaps is the best phrase to describe what we’re creating here. This vision was replicated at places on Coney Island, like Luna Park, and George C. Tilyou’s Steeplechase Park, or Palisades Park. These were basically wonderlands, and I thought Francis Ford Coppola Winery could become such a park for the family to go and enjoy, where there are things for kids to do, so they can be close to their parents who are sampling wines and foods.

I’ve often felt that modern life tends to separate all the ages too much. In the old days, the children lived with the parents and the grandparents, and the family unit each gave one another something very valuable. So when we began to develop the idea for this winery, we thought it should be like a resort, basically a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."

-Francis Ford Coppola
