HomeTasting Notes2007 Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut Zinfandel – Dry Creek Valley David Honig July 22, 2010 Tasting Notes 2 Comments Very juicy wine up front, offering up loads of blueberry, plum, and some prune, along with some coffee on the mid-palate. There are some obvious wood tones, cedar and spice. Unfortunately, it is less than the sum of its parts, disjointed and unbalanced. The fruit is too jammy, the coffee too bitter, the finish too sudden and short. It is reasonably priced and might work with heavily sauced barbecue toward the end of the summer, but it is not terribly special.

Unfortunately, your review of the contents inside the clever bottle is spot on. Had high hopes for this one. Maybe next year.
