  Francis Ford Coppola’s love for wine didn’t just sprout up overnight. His grandfather, Agostino Coppola, had a passion for wine back in the 1920s, when he used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment. They weren’t sophisticated wines: they were just everyday wines that anyone could enjoy. Francis and Eleanor Coppola, Francis’ wife, attempted to continue this passion when they purchased their own vineyard in Rutherford, California in 1975 using the proceeds from The Godfather. This plot was a part of the historic Inglenook Winery, and it included the former home of Gustave Niebaum, member of the Culinary Institute of America’s Vintner’s Hall of Fame. After tireless effort by the whole family, the winery produced its first vintage in 1977 under the Niebaum-Coppola label. After many years of success, the family purchased Inglenook Winery in its entirety in 1995. In 2006, the winery was renamed to Rubicon Estate Winery in honor of the estate’s flagship wine. The Coppola family couldn’t stop there - in March 2006, they purchased the former Chateau Souverain winery in Geyserville, California, transforming it into the Francis Ford Coppola Winery. In their first four years, their family of wines exploded from 12 to 45 wines. Corey Beck was made the director of wine-making and the general manager of the winery, and he currently oversees seven wine brands. There are currently 9 lines of wine, each with a different personality and varietal composition. The Sofia line, for example, was created as a gift from Francis to his daughter, and it exudes charm, style, and romance. Read less

Honestly, I liked this wine but I feel there are better alternatives. Much cheaper alternatives.

2012 was an excellent vintage across California because of steady, mild temperatures that persisted throughout summer. Monterey, which always has cool weather, experienced mainly cold nights and foggy mornings this year. Pinot Noir thrives if early morning fog is present but dissipates by mid morning. These weather conditions helped to produce fruit with delicate and complex aromas. In fact, the fruit was very aromatic at the crusher, delivering spice and floral notes. The sheer complexity of this vintage far exceeds the wine's price point. The wine shows an ample and rich body with layered structure and the length is generous with a persistent finish. - WineryAppearance: Bright redAromas: Cherries, strawberries, rose petals, clovesFlavors: Raspberries, pomegranate, spicy oakBarrel Regimen: 9 months in French oakAlcohol: 13.6%Total Acid: .56g/100mlpH: 3.72

Fruit-forward, lushly-textured Pinot Noir expressive of sunny days and cool Pacific nights. Purple garnet in color. Aromas of raspberries, rose petals and tea leaves, and flavors plums, strawberries and allspice.

The Monterey vineyards where our Pinot Noir grapes are grown offer ideal sun exposure, which ensures ripe fruit for us to make a rich, complex, fruit-driven wine. Seductive aromas of plum and spice lead to black cherry, currant, and strawberry flavors, a plush texture, and an elegant finish.
