Noble Estates offers two under $25 wines from Francis Ford Coppola’s Sonoma estate.
NOBLE TO YOUR DOOR – CALIFORNIA ICON
Winemaking has been a Coppola family tradition for several generations. Over 35 years ago, when Francis and Eleanor Coppola were living in San Francisco, the family began looking for a small cottage in Napa Valley. They were looking for a weekend retreat, and somewhere they could make a little homemade wine. The family cottage they found turned out to be the great Niebaum Mansion in Rutherford, on the famed Inglenook Estate. Suddenly, the prospect of restoring that legendary property sounded far more exciting than making a little bit of wine in the basement.
Once they had successfully accomplished the estate’s restoration (a 30-year endeavor) the Coppola family decided to build a new winery in Sonoma County, so that they could create a home for their ever-popular Diamond Collection and Rosso & Bianco wine brands. Today, we present to you two of the wines from this estate.
2014 Rosso & Bianco ‘Rosso’
$19.99 – Gold, San Francisco Wine Chronicle Competition
Rosso is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel from climatically diverse growing regions across California. Lodi fruit in particular benefits from temperature differentials where extremely warm daytime weather is offset by cool afternoon breezes.
The supple texture and rich, juicy flavors of plum, cherries, mocha, and strawberry jam make this wine a perfect accompaniment to almost any meal. I particularly like it with burgers, sausages and meat from the grill.
2015 Diamond Collection Chardonnay
$22.99 – 94 points San Francisco Critics Challenge
The Chardonnay reflects the distinctive personality of Monterey vineyards, which give rise to juicy apple, guava and melon flavors. Whole-cluster pressing and a combination of barrel and stainless-steel fermentation ensures that the creamy texture and caramelized sugar finish is balanced by a crisp acidity.
