Francis Coppola Diamond Collection: Claret 2007

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection: Claret 2007

This Claret ( UK's name for Bordeaux style wines ) is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec, and has all the light, smooth fruitiness, typical of Bordeaux blends.

Bordeaux owed allegiance to the English crown from the 1100's to the 1400's, so wine from France came to England. It was called claret by the British because these Bordeaux wines were relatively lighter in style as compared to the bolder wines from Spain and Portugal.
History aside, let's do some tasting. The nose is earthy, with berry, red fruit and plum aromas. The plentiful flavors of current, blackberry and hints of strawberry all swirl about. These flavors in combination with balanced tannins create an amazing texture - a smooth medium finish. The final flavors are deliciously soft and generously fruity. This is a great wine.

Lamb has such a unique flavor, able to stand up to the strongest reds when pairing with wines. It's a main dish for those who love to taste all life has to offer. This course features a stuffing of Chardonnay marinated golden raisins and apricots. It will serve 6 people. Let's get cooking!
