Review of Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2008 Pinot Noir

Happy Hour: Coppola Diamond Collection 2008 Pinot Noir

Although I don't drink too much red wine in the Summer, the other night I made spicy turkey burgers that were just dying to be paired with a lush, rich red. Since I'm a fan of Francis Coppola's sparkling wine, Sofia, I was excited to give another of his varietals, the 2008 Diamond Collection Pinot Noir, a try. The filmmaker's Diamond Collection features single varietal wines that are considered classically Californian. The grapes for the Pinot come from Monterey County. It's an excellently balanced Pinot that I thoroughly enjoyed. The wine has a deep red color with berry aromas and a hint of spice. It's smooth, easy to drink, and perfect for Summer's assortment of grilled fare.

Have you tried Coppola's wines? What do you think of them?
