Garnet red in colour. The bouquet delivers ample body and a fresh aromas with blackberries, raspberries, clove and pepper followed by succulent aromas of cherries, mixed berries and mocha. A Zinfandel that pushes the envelope of decadence with voluptuous, concentrated flavours of fruit jam, chocolate and vanilla. Small amounts of Petite Syrah are added to the blend to create a sturdier structure and more complexity on the 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.
