"Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms." -Francis Ford Coppola
Dark and expressive, the 2016 Director’s Merlot delivers impeccable balance, outstanding complexity, and a lush texture that exemplifies the excellence of this vintage. Scents of warm plum, gingerbread, vanilla bean, and seasoned wood extend onto the palate and mingle with succulent flavors of cherry, cassis, and cocoa. This is a very polished wine with a long, fragrant finish.
