The Francis Coppola Diamond Series of wines are made from grapes grown in the cool valleys along California`s rugged coast. Rich and ripe, these wines represent the individual flavors of the varietals accentuated by twelve months of barrel aging. The majority of vineyards for this Syrah are located in the central coast area of Paso Robles. We have watched in amazement at the explosive growth of vineyards in this area. The early wines that we have tried have been exciting and definitely worth another look. As we began putting this new Syrah together, we wanted to have some vineyard sourcing from this area. What we found here were very intense, very powerful wines that provide a dynamic base for our style of winemaking.
