2001 Francis Ford Coppola Syrah

Price: $15

I haven’t done a review in a while, but you haven’t missed much. A great Chardonnay (Newton), but whatever. Trying the syrah, in search of the jammy zinfandel, but this is a little too bright for me.

*sigh*

Can nothing please me? Wait. Getting better. Blueberry vanilla with a side of underwear, anyone?

Francis Ford Coppola Gold Label Chardonnay

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under American wines, Chardonnay, Reviews, White wines, Wine Reviews, region, style | Leave a Comment

Price: $15

Okay, watching ‘The Last Samurai’, eating popcorn, and now I’m drinking Francis Ford Coppola’s wine. While its true that this is the man who directed The Godfather, this is also the man who directed ‘Tucker: The Man and His Dream.’ Which wine will we get? Let’s find out!

First sip…oooh, good, fruity, but full. A little keroseney, but I can forgive it. Its sweet. The bottle mentions guava, which I think is pushing it, but whatever. All in all, a very good wine. Not “The Godfather”, per se, but worthy of a sequel.
