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?

I've tried the Chardonnay Gold from the Diamond Collection, as well as Sofia. They're both really good and I'd recommend them.
