Francis Coppola Diamond Collection - Blue Label Merlot
- A vibrant California Merlot, displaying luscious plum and red raspberry flavors.
- Sourced from the same core of Merlot grape-growers since premiere vintage in 1997.
Our Merlot combines fruit from Napa, Sonoma and Monterey. The flavors and textures unique to each region harmonize perfectly to create a wine that has dark succulent fruit balanced by natural acidity. Intense aromatics of raspberry and blueberry lead to flavors of crushed berries, vanilla and leather, which are wrapped up in a soft, smooth tannin structure.
