Purple garnet in colour. The flavours and textures unique to each region harmonize perfectly to create a wine that has dark succulent fruit balanced by natural acidity. The bouquet brings intense aromatics of raspberry and blueberry lead to notes of crushed berries, vanilla and leather, which are wrapped up in a soft, smooth tannin structure on a vibrant fresh finish.

Francis Ford Coppola is best known as the five-time Oscar-winning director, writer, and producer of such epic films as the Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now. As a writer, director, producer, and technological pioneer, Coppola has created a body of work that has helped to shape contemporary American cinema. He has been making films for more than fifty years and wine for nearly forty. In 1975, Francis and Eleanor purchased part of the historic Inglenook Estate, including over 1400 acres of land and founder Gustave Niebaum's Victorian home and carriage house. Coppola renamed the estate Niebaum-Coppola and in 1978 produced the first vintage of Rubicon. 1995, the Coppolas purchased the remaining part of the original property, which included the Inglenook Chateau and approximately 90 acres of vineyards, thus restoring the Estate to its historic dimensions. "In America, so few things that are broken apart are ever put back together. Reuniting this property was truly a dream come true, both for my family and for Napa Valley." The Coppolas restored the Chateau and grounds to grandeur, making it one of the most beautiful visitor destinations in the Napa Valley. In addition to Inglenook, Coppola also owns the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville, California.
