2008 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Black Label Claret
|A pleasant Bordeaux blend from Coppola – a name that you can usually count on for a pretty good value. This wine is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The result is a full bodied red that’s rich and flavorful, but not overpowering, with a slightly peppery and dry finish.|
This bottle was $12.99 at my Costco, and that is certainly the best price I’ve ever seen in a store (online might be closer). For the price, this is a very enjoyable wine, and I’ll drop it in our Bronze Rated wine list.
