Francis Coppola / Niebaum-Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label Claret 2007, 87 points

Had this wine at Flemming’s in Scottsdale AZ.  The color was a dark purple. The nose was nice and complex. Bold fresh and floral on the nose. The palate was overall a let down. Not a bang and was kind of mellow and dark. I think the Merlot in this wine mellows it out.  I was hoping for more from this wine and I was not impressed.  I woud not rush out.  Good wine but not outstanding.

  • Brian,

    Hope you’re having a great time on the road. Had this wine a few weeks back to taste, and I’m NO wine expert, but I agree.

    Better smelling wine than drinking wine. Much better wines for the dollar. Keep up the good work.
