Winemaker's Notes:

2009 was a great vintage for all California appellations and an excellent vintage for Pinot Noir. Light spring rains were followed by warm summer days and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. As a result of these fortuitous conditions, we harvested very high quality fruit with true physiological ripeness and great concentration.

Our 2009 Diamond Collection Pinot Noir offers a rich, velvety texture, profuse aromatics, and a beautiful tapestry of juicy fruits and spice nuances. This wine is delicious when paired with a sautéed mushroom topped salmon steak, herb-rubbed pork chops, or creamy risotto.

About Francis Ford Coppola Winery:

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, whose passion for wine, food and adventure is nowhere more evident than in this new production – a winery resort located in the heart of Alexander Valley, California. Among the many attractions at the property, Francis Ford Coppola Winery features a wine tasting bar, two restaurants, swimming pools, a movie gallery, a performing arts pavilion and a park area with game tables and bocce courts.

Francis puts it best, saying the winery is meant to be "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."
