Natalie's Score: 90/100

A well-made robust red with black fruit and mocha notes. Yes, this is from the producer of The Godfather and other box office hits. The winery is well worth a visit when you're in Napa next time. Pair with goulash and the movie Dracula.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pork tenderloin, spaghetti with meatballs and sausage, roast lamb, game meats, slow-roasted beef.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nicely done Coppola! This wine pours with a deep dark ruby red appearance. Plum, leather, spice (licorice), and cocoa dominate the notes. Let it breathe! Decant for one hour prior to serving. Tannins are high with a balanced acidity and a long spice finish. Pair with Montreal spiced smoked meat. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Like a blockbuster, this full body wine from Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, reveals fruity aromas of dark skin plum, fresh lavender, mint, wet rock, pepper and cedar. This cast displays tart plum, fern, pepper, a touch of vanilla and cedar. Without being to grippy, the tannins are elegant and the acidity is agreable. Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 demonstrate good character with a nice finish, made to sip. This Cabernet Sauvignon will go well with a good movie after diner. Enjoy!

Francis Ford Coppola's Director's Cut 2014 is a robust Cabernet Sauvignon from cooler-climate Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. The winemaker here is Corey Beck, and his Alexander Valley Cabernet has earned high praise with its deep purple colour and richly textured wine. Pair with smoky ribs and game meats. - 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.
