Wine Notes

Winemaking has been a Coppola family tradition for several generations. So has
making art and providing entertainment, from music and cinema, to dining
experiences, and international hideaway adventures. For Francis Ford Coppola,
all of these endeavors embody a celebration of life, merely designed with different
tools. This wine’s label, featuring Eleanor Coppola’s handwriting, is the original
label design from the first Family Coppola wines bottled in the early 1980’s. Three
decades later, the family’s small wine endeavor is now an established wine legacy.

Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak rises 3,000 feet above the Alexander Valley.
Unlike the diurnal climate that defines much of Sonoma where there is a dramatic
difference between warm day and cool nighttime temperatures, the elevation of
Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak creates the reverse condition where it’s relatively
cool during the day and warm in the evening due to an inversion layer. This along
with mountainous volcanic soils create intensely flavored fruit.

The 2017 growing season delivered smaller than average clusters, which led to
excellent concentration and high-quality fruit overall. Vibrant, well-defined
flavors combined with a velvety palate that offers tremendous balance between
fruit, tannin, and natural acidity makes our debut release of The Family Coppola
Cabernet Sauvignon from Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak a showstopper.

Enjoy the Scents and Flavors

Gorgeous aromas of wild blackberries, anise, smoky minerals, and briar are followed by succulent flavors of cherries, cassis, and cocoa. This is a sophisticated wine that has depth and density but also a freshness that comes from the quality of this excellent vintage.
