Francis Coppola Eleanor Red 2017


Characteristics:
Francis Ford Coppola has been married for more than 50 years to Eleanor, this wine is made as a tribute to her. A solid blend of old vines made from 42% Sonoma County Syrah , 33% Rutherford Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Alexander Valley Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, velvety texture and sophisticated level of complexity. The purity of the fruit gives this vintage polish and the wine has a wealth of structure to evolve further in bottle. Vivid notes of black currants, star anise, cedar and vanilla-tinged oak are followed by succulent palate impressions of candied cherries and cassis. Hints of violets and stone minerals emerge on the long, lush finish.

Food pairing:
Hearty meat or spicy dishes & pastas. Coppola suggests 'Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese Butter, Slow Cooker Beef with Pasta & Porcini, Braised Beef Short Ribs with Pancetta & Crimini Mushrooms'
