When the Coppola family opened the doors to its wine and food destination in Sonoma County, the winemaking team was asked to create a series of wines that would reflect its own artistic interpretation of the region. Director’s Sonoma is comprised of four classic varietals, which are grown in diverse vineyards across the entire 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 designed for immediate enjoyment, which demonstrate Sonoma County’s unique character and style.

Wine Notes

The 2017 Director’s Cabernet Sauvignon greets you with aromas of dark chocolate, mocha, blackberry and spice. Flavors of warm oak and chocolate covered blueberries follow on the palate, coupled with notes of Mexican hot chocolate, caramel, and leather; Structured tannins bring everything together for a well-balanced, compelling wine.

The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but after a mild spring, temperatures increased and remained quite warm throughout summer and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, leading to excellent concentration and fruit quality. This season’s grapes offer firm tannins with power and density in the glass.

Sonoma County

“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
