Big Winery, Big Flavor

I don’t know about you, but when I think of Francis Ford Coppola, wine is not at the top of  the list of my thoughts. But you know what, it should be! 

The Black Diamond label Claret is quickly becoming one of my favorite reds, and you can even get it at your neighborhood Target! This wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon blend made in the classic Bordeaux style. Claret is a term originally from England to describe Cab Sav blend wines. This blend also happens to be comprised of Cabernet Frank, Petit Verdot and Merlot. All these delicious grapes merge to make an easy drinking red that will have you coming back for more. And in my case, many more. Check it out! Extra bonus: the gold netting adornment on the bottle makes you look extra fancy. Like “Not from Target” fancy, even though you are super proud of your fancy find.   

Extra Extra bonus, Francis Ford Coppola Winery is part of Sonoma County Winegrower’s three-phase commitment to become the nations’s first 100% sustainable wine region by 2019. sonomawinegrape.org/sustainability  They also have SEVERAL sustainable certifications for both their winery and surrounding vineyards, including  Certified California, Certified Fish Friendly Farming, Bee Friendly Farming and are a EPA Green Power Partner!
