HISTORY

When the Coppola family opened the doors to their wine and food destination in Sonoma County, California they wanted to create a series of wines that harness the uniqueness of Sonoma County. The Director’s family of wines is our winemaking team’s artistic interpretation of that vision.

Director’s is comprised of four classic varietals, which are grown in diverse vineyards across the expanse of Sonoma County. By blending the fruit from a variety of geographic climates we’re able to create wines that offer lush, ripe fruit flavors, a light silky texture and soft, supple tannins— elegant wines that demonstrate Sonoma County’s unique character and style, and are designed for immediate enjoyment.

“Sonoma County is one of only a few appellations in the world that offers a diverse range of climates where both cool climate varietals such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and warm weather varietals like Cabernet and Merlot can thrive.” – Corey Beck, CEO & Winemaking Chief

WINEMAKER'S NOTES

2015 Director’s Merlot is one of the most dense and sophisticated vintages of this wine we’ve produced. There is power on the palate while remaining smooth with subtle,
well-integrated tannins. A beautiful fragrance of baked blueberry pie, spice box, toasted woods, and dried lavender is followed by sweet, juicy flavors of cherries, blackberries, cloves and vanilla bean.

VINTAGE NOTES

2015 was an outstanding vintage that produced extremely high-quality grapes. Warm,
dry conditions throughout spring and summer helped reduce yields. From this climate,
we harvested smaller than normal berries that offered intense concentration, but were
also balanced by a vibrant, natural acidity for structure.

Barrel Regimen: 10 Months in French and American oak, 44% new oak

Region: Sonoma County

Blend: 94% Merlot 3% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon
