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 2018 Director’s Cabernet Sauvignon greets you with aromas of toffee, espresso, and blackberry. Melted tannins and a lush, velvety midpalate reveal flavors of blackberry, cherry, cassis, and wild berry, with a hint of toasted nuts and almonds on the long, impressive finish.

The last couple of vintages have seen a return to classic seasonal patterns where a cold rainy winter prepares the vines for warm temperature later. In 2018, precipitation lasted through spring, extending the growing season by several weeks. Fewer heat spikes during the summer months ripened the fruit at a nice steady pace, providing tremendous balance.

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.”
