Francis Coppola – Niebaum-Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Collection Ivory Label 2008

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Country: USA – California

The wine has a deep cerise colour. Intriguingly complex fruit and spice. Unfortunately, this is tedious to drink due to a cheapish and persistent sweet/sour, ripe fruit/vinegar theme.  Not enjoyable at all.

Vintage: ?
Type: Old Vine Zinfandel
Country: California – US

As I find with most Zinfandels, they are a little disappointing. This one is certainty not one of the better ones.
