Director's Cut 2014 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Francis Ford Coppola
With his Director's Cut series of wines Francis Ford Coppola focuses on the elite sub-regions of Sonoma County. For Pinot Noir there's no better location than Russian River Valley. The Russian River Valley climate is defined by a regular intrusion of cooling fog from the Pacific Ocean a few miles to the west. Much like the tide, the fog ebbs and flows, arriving each evening, cooling the area down from its daytime temperatures by as much as 35 to 40 degrees. This natural air conditioning provides for an extended growing season where the Pinot Noir grapes mature slowly for optimal development and maintain a good level of natural acidity. Meanwhile, the Valley’s loam and alluvial soil compositions help create rich and fragrant Pinot Noir that offers pronounced floral notes and a distinct earthy character. Grapes were fermented in open-top fermenters where they punched the cap down several times a day for added extraction. When fermentation was complete, the wine was placed in French oak barrels for 6 months, 40% new, 60% 1–2 year old. This wine was a Platinum Medal winner with 94 points in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition. One Judge wrote "Coppola's Director's Cut Pinot Noir from the excellent 2014 vintage is yet another in the recent string of outstanding California pinots released to sell under the $30 price point. This one's spicy, with bright red fruits and a hint of cola and a soft, smooth palate." A real gem!!
