Francis Ford Coppola Winery Diamond Collection, Black Label Claret is the winery's signature red wine, layered with flavours of blackberry, cassis and roasted espresso.
It is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine, blended in the classic Bordeaux style that honours the first Cabernet Sauvignon blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines.
This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise. Borrowing tradition of European wineries, Coppola Winery add gold netting to bottle to signify the outstanding quality of the wine.
