Honoring 3 decades of The Family Coppola’s wine legacy.
Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak rises 3,000 feet above the Alexander Valley. Unlike the diurnal climate that defines much of Sonoma where there is a dramatic difference between warm day and cool nighttime temperatures, the elevation of Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak creates the reverse condition where it’s relatively cool during the day and warm in the evening due to an inversion layer. This along with mountainous volcanic soils create intensely flavored fruit.
The 2017 growing season delivered smaller than average clusters, which led to excellent concentration and high-quality fruit overall. Vibrant, well-defined flavors combined with a velvety palate that offers tremendous balance between fruit, tannin, and natural acidity makes our debut release of The Family Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon from Pine Mountain - Cloverdale Peak a showstopper. Gorgeous aromas of wild blackberries, anise, smoky minerals, and briar are followed by succulent flavors of cherries, cassis, and cocoa. This is a sophisticated wine that has depth and density but also a freshness that comes from the quality of this excellent vintage.
