This is an everyday type of red. It's very appealing, nice grape flavor, mild tannins, nice aftertaste with lingering flavor. Bit of vanilla, tad of spice and a lovely finish. Coppola wines rock. Never disappointing in my red world.
great Chardonnay for the price.
External Reviews for Coppola 'Rosso & Bianco' Bianco Chardonnay
Appearance: Garnet redAromas: Cherries, cassis, sweet oakFlavors: Mixed berries, plums, spiceOur Rosso fruit is grown in Lodi, where warm sunny days give way to cool afternoons and evenings. This temperature differential slows the ripening process and allows the grapes to gain more dimension.Rosso's flavor complexity is a result of blending varietals: Zinfandel offers sweet, juicy flavors and lively spice nuances, Syrah gives the wine a velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon provides the structure and red fruit flavors, and Petite Sirah contributes weight and body.2011 was a long, cool vintage with smaller than normal yields. The benefit of having less fruit on the vines is that the grapes develop more intense aromatics and flavor complexity. Because the grapes experienced longer hang-time as well, this year's Rosso offers beautiful concentration. - Corey Beck, Winemaker
