“Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms. In both cases, you have to start with top notch raw materials whether it’s the land or a script.”
That’s what Francis Ford Coppola when he came out with his Director’s Great Movies collection and made this Merlot, with grapes from Sonoma and Monterey counties. I love the velvety texture of Merlot, which is classically blended with Cabernet Sauvignon in Bordeaux. I recently got my dad one from the Pomerol region, and if you have any good witches in your life maybe they’ll splurge on you too for the August 25 anniversary.
