Francis Coppola's Diamond Collection Red Label 2016 is a full-bodied 95% Zinfandel with 5% Petite Sirah sourced from old vines in Amador County and cooler-climate sites in Paso Robles and Sonoma. Perfumed with ripe dark fruit and toasty spices, a bit of Petite Sirah is blended in to enhance the strawberry compote, light herbs, cake spices and vanilla flavours on this lush red.

Zinfandel food pairings: BBQ ribs, roast chicken, turkey.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

more oaked than previous vintages. Big fruit, big oak and medium bodied to keep it all fresh and wanting more.

Pair with grilled pork ribs or beef sliders. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
