Known name to, oh everyone? This “claret” is distinctly California but not in a way to make me run to Bordeaux. More or less it is yummy wine and sometimes that is what you want. Rich blackberries, vanilla and a smidge of clove. Eat (drink) it up.

Very nice and smooth. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys Cab Sauvignon.

FFC Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, who has passion for wine and food. Deep red with black fruit aromas and oaky spice. On the palate blueberry and blackberry flavors with herb pepper and smoky oak, not overly complex. Medium finish, strong tannins with spicy ending.

California Bordeaux style blend. Big blackberry/ black cherry fruit. Lots of vanilla. Medium body. Hints of smoke.
Balanced acidity and smooth tannins. Good QPR.

Overpowering. The tannins and dark earth runs over the fruit. Rough around the edges.

Very nice for the price! Big and fruity at first, leather, anise and juniper. Medium plus body ties the heavy spice and red fruits together nicely.
