Francis Ford Coppola Pinot Noir Cali­fornia Votre Santé 2011

Jeffery Lindenmuth - January/February 2014

This Pinot nicely balances great presence with quiet complexity. Compared to many California Pinots, it veers to the lighter side, elegant in its cedary clove-laced strawberry fruit. It embraces Pinot Noir’s hallmarks of supple texture and bright fruit, making it a great by-the-glass value.
