Community Tasting Note

  • Thomas D. wrote: 80 points

    April 26, 2020 - I was always a big fan of Francis Ford Coppola, ever since Apocalypse Now, that I saw at movies theaters when I was young. Later I wanted to date his daughter, like everybody that is a film enthusiast, I guess.
    Now I am happily married, so why not try his wine, I thought. I always wanted to try a wine of the Coppola family since I found out that they are doing wines. So here we are and we need to be strong ;)

    N. Elegant is something else - into the face with artificial vanilla ( like in these pudding pulver you can buy) and a not at all harmonic greenish oak note.

    T. Like a piece of oak soaked with Chardonnay, I could not describe it better than a fellow taster here, thanks for the tasting note.
    A sweetness that is a bit unnatural also is in the wine, yesterday it was worse when I opened the bottle, but today it is still „special“

    Oh dear, I understand from the winery’s webpage that this „Diamond“ line is the basic line, they also sell those wines in cans. But still...
    Decision: I need to go there and taste the other wines!

    This one is not worth to buy the name of my favorite director!
