Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut Zinfandel 2017

RRP £24.84

Enhanced nose dominated by American Oak. Complex vanilla, coconut complemented the sweet core of black fruit. The palate has a delicious blue fruit and violet background. Silky tannins balanced with acidity that have excellent finesse for the style of wine.
