Mission Briefing

Codename:

A wine you can't refuse

After nearly 10 years of begging Coppola to allow us to showcase one of their wines, we finally got our hands on one. And not just any Coppola, mind you. Today only, we have their stunning Francis Ford Coppola Winery 2013 Pitagora Red Blend. This wine is dark, dense and packed with dark fruit and savory goodness…

This wine is a blend of varietals from three different Sonoma County sub-appellations, Alexander Valley, Sonoma Valley, and Dry Creek Valley. Petite Sirah makes up the solid backbone of this delicious wine, while Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot round it out, giving it a melange of dark fruit, spice, and earthen flavors.

We’re really enamored with this wine and we are excited for you to get some for yourself.

Enjoy!!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and foreboding dark purple, with an inky and nearly black heart. Spin the wine in the glass and it clings to the walls, coating it with a cascade of purple tears.

Smell:

Blackberry jam, blueberry pie, spice box, stewed plum, dried fall leaves, briar patch, tobacco and cracked pepper.

Taste:

Grilled black cherry, stewed plum, dusty bramble, graphite, clay pot, tobacco leaf, black tea leaf, baker’s chocolate, cocoa dust, vanilla, black currant and cracked pepper.

Finish:

Extra long and very rich, with dark fruit and spice that linger on and on, seemingly forever…

Pairing:

This big, bad, beauty wants to be enjoyed with your favorite grilled meats. Why not enjoy it with a thick, charred Porterhouse with your favorite sides?
