Pinot Noir

Coppola 'Diamond Collection' Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

750 ML


Product Description

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. People are saying that 2006 could be the best Pinot Noir vintage in ten years, and I would have to agree. The wine has exceptionally dark color, which is not typical of this 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.
