Lot #27 FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA WINERY
- Alexander Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
A play on words of one of Francis Ford Coppola’s famous films “The Outsiders,” you can be “The Insider” – an insider into the Coppola winemaking family, an insider into the inner workings of the winery and an insider into what normally just the winemakers get to taste in this never before, never again barrel lot. “The Insider” is a Cabernet Sauvignon single-barrel wine from an extraordinary vintage.
“The Insider” winemakers all have different approaches, backgrounds and history, brought together in this one barrel lot. They visited the vineyards regularly throughout the growing season, walking and tasting, evaluating every aspect. The blocks were picked separately, fermented separately and barrel aged separately so that they could be evaluated individually and only blended when “The Insiders” were happy.
“The Insider” is a bold, rich, exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon in classic Alexander Valley style, expressing bright fruits of plum and blueberry, toasty warm bread and length that goes on and on. The wine is round, mouth-filling, concentrated and juicy, with elegant melted tannins and leaves you wanting more.
