Named after the version of a film which most reflects the director's vision, Director's Cut wines represent our winemaker's vision of varietal wines, which express true appellation character.
In the film business, the “Director’s Cut” emerged as a means for filmmakers to present their own creative vision of a story. At Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Director’s Cut wines were created as a way for our winemakers to craft wines that would reflect their own unique interpretation of the quintessential Sonoma wine.
The Zinfandel and the Cabernet Sauvignon in the 2019 Cinema perfectly complement each other. The core of the Zinfandel is sourced from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery Estate Vineyards, visible from the terrace of Rustic Restaurant. Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from throughout the Alexander Valley and Pine Mountain AVAs provides silky tannins that remain consistent across the palate. Petite Sirah rounds out the blend with more firm structural tannin and deep purple hues. Bright, medium-bodied, with a long fresh fruit finish, the 2019 Director’s Cut Cinema is a wine to remember!
The 2019 Director’s Cut Cinema is sourced from both Alexander Valley and Pine Mountain AVAs. Having made single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for many years now, we understand the diverse profiles of different selections, and have honed our expertise in creating Director’s Cut Cinema using fruit that creates an exciting, bold, and harmonious blend each vintage.
