Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Energetic, approachable and enjoyable is my read of the 2018 Diamond Collection Cabernet Sauvignon from Francis Ford Coppola.

Crafted with cabernet sauvignon grown in California and Oregon, this red has big notes of ripe, red fruit – evoking strawberry and cherries for me – hand in hand with light touch oak spices and micro doses of dark chocolate.

This serve with steak and burgers cabernet feels full bodied, desert dry, warm and mouth coating. What's more, this red's modest, tugging tannins complement its big flavours. The finish is long and pleasing. Enjoy.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely and balanced, aromas of black currant, black cherry, and plum, with hints of eucalyptus, mocha, and spice. Full bodied, smooth on the palate with medium acidity, ripe, lusciuos fruit, and hints of mocha, caramel, and spice on the finish. Enjoy with any grilled meats.
