Votre Sante 2012 Pinot Noir California, Francis Ford Coppola
Item Number: 17 20 175 12
Francis Ford Coppola's Votre Sante wines are a tribute to his grandmother, who though not French, would say 'Votre Sante' every time she toasted due to her being born in Tunisia. Under this label he produces the two Burgundy varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and they both represent super value! This Pinot is sourced from prime vineyards in Monterey, Carneros and Mendocino, great Pinot Noir growing regions. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by aging in French oak barrels for 9 months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "The personality of Pinot Noir really comes through in this charming, medium-bodied, lighter-colored, aromatic offering from Coppola. It has the blend of nuances that remind us of cherry, herb and walking through a pine forest, and offers a tangy texture and fresh finish that lingers."
