Natalie's Score: 88/100

Smoky, dark and brooding like Coppola's Dracula movie. Full-bodied and smooth with black plums and toasty oak. Merlot food pairings: Applewood smoked cheddar, gourmet burgers.

Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deb won a bottle of Coppola Blue Label Merlot at a golf tournament, but it was not just any bottle of merlot. It was a gigantic bottle of merlot large enough to serve all the Godfathers and their families. It took the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals several Girlfriend Question and Answer sessions (we like to ask each other mild, medium and hot questions) over several days to work our way through Deb's prized merlot, but it was well worth the effort.
Francis Coppola certainly understands that a well-crafted film relies upon the artful combination of precise direction, truthful acting, meticulous cinematography, skilled editing, and appropriate music. Similarly the Blue Label Merlot, sourced from fruit grown in Napa, Sonoma and Monterey, blends the unique characteristics of these regions to create a thoroughly delicious wine that is structured, balanced and loaded with black fruit.
