Editorial Reviews for Francis Ford Coppola Pinot Noir California Votre Santé
This is fresh and clean on the nose with a slight balsamic edge to the coffee toned black raspberry fruit. Sweet top notes of licorice and dried orange peel. This is round yet focused on entry, with a wonderfully raspberry fruit tone framed with soft tannins and lightly toasted oak notes. The balance here is really quite fine, and while this is a touch simple, it delivers really nice, pure and intense raspberry fruit. This turns a bit more cherry on the back end and gains some light herbal/floral notes on the moderately long, slightly oaky finish. This is not fancy but is quite attractive and will appeal to a very broad spectrum of palates. 90pts
a bit too sweet for my taste
Candied cherries, a bit astringent and jammy, this leads up into a fairly balanced pinot that has some ripe fruit notes laced with a bit of black and red licorice. A succulent finish that lingers just the right amount of time...
Such a full bodied wine with a hint of fruit flavor to finish.
A very thin, light style pinot. Cherries, cranberries, tea and raspberries. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Faint aromas of cranberries, with flavors of strawberry and cinnamon with a bit of higher-toned cranberry thrown in. Nice wine.

Fruit-forward, lushly-textured Pinot Noir expressive of sunny days and cool Pacific nights. Purple garnet in color. Aromas of raspberries, rose petals and tea leaves, and flavors plums, strawberries and allspice.
Monterey County provides ideal conditions for growing temperamental Pinot Noir grapes. Aromatic and juicy, this wine is great with lamb chops or wild mushroom ravioli.
Winemaker's NotesWe source our Pinot Noir grapes from several vineyards in Monterey County. The cool Mediterranean climate that characterizes the region allows the grapes to develop full flavor maturity over an extended growing season. We pick the fruit in the early morning hours and bring the fruit inside for immediate crush and 48-hours of cold soak. This technique helps intensify the color and elicit more profound aromas. During fermentation, the grapes are punched down four times a day to extract the maximum amount of flavor and just the right amount of tannin. A majority of the wine is finished in stainless steel in order to retain the varietal's juicy fruit flavor and subtle color. A small portion is aged in small French oak barrels to impart delicate spicy nuances. The wines are then blended to create a medium-bodied, deliciously fruity Pinot Noir. 2009 was a great vintage for all California appellations and an excellent vintage for Pinot Noir.

The Monterey vineyards where our Pinot Noir grapes are grown offer ideal sun exposure, which ensures ripe fruit for us to make a rich, complex, fruit-driven wine. Seductive aromas of plum and spice lead to black cherry, currant, and strawberry flavors, a plush texture, and an elegant finish. - Winery
