The 2019 Francis Coppola Reserve Petite Sirah is rich and dark, with inky concentration and tantalizing aromas of star anise, potpourri, and pipe tobacco. Rich flavors of clove, licorice, ripe plums, and blueberry jam create decadent layers of powerful flavor. Although Petite Sirah is renowned for its intense color and firm tannins (making it a valuable blending tool in the winery), the Bevill-Wollcott Vineyard fruit’s savory notes and subtle black fruit flavors make it a standout and an age-worthy single vineyard bottling.
The connection between a vine and the soil it’s planted in creates the essence of a wine. Francis Coppola Reserve wines are vineyard-specific creations produced in limited quantities. Our winemaking team hand-selects the best lots of fruit from each vintage that capture the unique qualities of these prestigious vineyards. From these selections, we craft small-batch wines which are reserved exclusively for our winery guests, Wine Family members, and those who shop with us online.
