Reviews of Francis Ford Coppola Director's Cut Pinot Noir 2017
Red base colour with violet hints. Aromas of raisins. Balanced in the mouth.
Cherry colour, as they all are. Smells a lot of oak. Unfortunately the wine tasted and smelled foul,like cork.
We had it while we waited for the meal, with appetizers.
