A medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a velvety palate that is soft and elegant, the wine boasts sweet, juicy fruit with a beautiful perfume, well dressed tannins that are melted rather than dry, aromatic spice nuances and a long finish.
Francis Ford Coppola's inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret he found in the cellar of his Napa Valley property when he purchased it in 1975. Coppola's Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor, and immediate drinkability.
Up front there is a clean, fresh impression. The mid-palate has vibrancy and balance. Tannins are smooth and well-integrated. On top of freshly picked flavors of red fruits and cherries, this wine also offers a pleasing scent of forest floor with well-integrated oak providing a balance of toast and vanilla flavors. Enjoy with roasted duck, game, grilled chicken, or BBQ. (from the vintner)
