Winemaker's Notes:

After harvest, we placed whole-clusters of fruit into open-top fermenters and performed punch downs several times a day. Once the must was pressed, we placed the wine into small French oak barrels for a year to undergo maturation, racking it several times throughout its development.

Our 2008 Director's Cut Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir displays a vibrant personality and silky texture. It's highly aromatic, with scents of cloves, tea leaves, and roses, followed by bright flavors of red cherries, cranberries, and plums.

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."
