2013 Coppola Directors Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 750ML
Director's Pinot Noir is made from a blend of Carneros and Russian River Valley fruit. Because we combine fruit from two appellations, we designate this wine "Sonoma Coast." Our Carneros fruit boasts notes of spice and earth while our Russian River fruit offers density and richness. We harvest in the early morning hours so that the fruit retains its vibrancy as it's placed into open-top fermenters. Daily punch downs of the must gently extract the color and flavors as fermentation progresses. Finally, we use Burgundy-style barrels for maturation.
Director's Pinot Noir reflects the beauty of the vintage with an alluring fragrance of raspberries, cherries, and rose petals. Silky upon entry, the wine broadens on the palate, growing richer and more flavorful with sweet juicy flavors of strawberries, cherries, and cloves, as well as notes of tea leaves and candied orange peel. Toasted oak rounds out the spice character and helps sustain its elegant structure. Enjoy with grilled salmon, spice rubbed pork chops, or mushroom risotto.
