The Best yet at an under $20.00 a bottle wine it can't be beat. From the first taste you'll be impressed
One of the best Pinot Noir I have had in some time. I have had a bit of bad luck with Pinot's being overly light and without much taste, this is not the case with this one. In the glass this wine has a deep violet color but still somewhat transparent. Red berry and floral aromas are very vivid. On tasting, I noted hints of plum, raspberry, cherry, strawberry, and a background spice that really gave this Pinot Noir the character I was seeking in a Pinot. Finish was subtle but very pleasant. Very well made wine.
Not a big Pinot Noir fan, a little light for my tastes, but an ok wine nonetheless.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Silver Label Pinot Noir has a bright ruby color and reveals an alluring perfume of red plums, flowers, and sweet spices. Profuse flavors of black cherry, dark currant, and strawberry fill out the plush palate while notes of sandalwood continue into the soft, elegant finish.

Our Pinot Noir grapes are harvested in the early morning hours, crushed, and then cold soaked for 48 hours to elicit color and aromas. During fermentation, the grapes are punched down four times a day to intensify flavors and extract tannin. Then, the wine is aged in small French oak barrels. Since its inception, the Francis Coppola Diamond Collection has been an expansive endeavor to create consistently high-quality wines that are pure expressions of each varietal. We sought out vineyard sites across California, which would ensure superior grapes year-after-year, and we employ precise winemaking techniques to showcase the true character of our fruit. This enterprise has become a true labor of love. We invite you to share it with us.
In addition to having well-endowedflavor, the fruit is nicely balanced by a crisp acidity. The Coppola 2007 Pinot Noir is not only dark and bigger bodied, it displays a rich perfume and delivers long, intense flavors.A good match for beef bourguignon, lamb chops or wild mushroom ravioli.Appearance Deep purple garnetAromas Strawberry jam, wild raspberries and rose petalsFlavors Cranberry, raspberry, cherry and allspice
What is the character of the Diamond Pinot Noir? Click here to see what winemaker Corey Beck has to say.The Diamond Collection Pinot Noir has exceptionally dark color, which is not typical of the varietal. It exhibits explosive aromatics and impressive concentration, due in large part to the well-draining soils of our Monterey vineyards. Tannins are supple and the finish on this wine is extremely lengthy."Monterey experienced an outstanding 2007 season. Budbreak occurred later than normal due to a cold winter; however, in spite of the chilly temperatures there was little precipitation. As a result, the vines were not vigorous and produced fewer and smaller fruit clusters. The benefit of having reduced amounts of fruit is that the grapes become tremendously concentrated." - Corey Beck, Winemaker
