Mission Codename V is for Vivacious
Are you looking for a budget-friendly wine that you can stock up on for the Holidays? We have a screaming deal on the vibrant and vivacious Francis Ford Coppola Winery 2013 Vendetta Red.
Verbose vernacular aside, this vermilion victor from the veteran virtuosos of vinous delights, the Coppola winery, is a viable, vital and veritably vivid red blend that will please your most valiant guests and soothe your most vexing visitors.
Fittingly, this wine is a deep, dark blood red that blots out all light attempting to pass through. Vibrant berry aromas leap out of the glass with huge dulcet notes of blackberry and raspberry. There’s some orange blossom honey, barrel spice, and walnut there too. Taking a sip, the bramble and blackberry flavors are joined by toasted vanilla bean, marmalade and dried apple. This brooding red delivers the goods with enough tannin to drive an expansive, spicy profile that is perfect for a nice meal. In fact, grab this wine, some gabagool to start before settling down with a big bowl of Grandma’s fettuccine Arrabbiata.
