Francis Coppola Reserve

Russian RIver Valley - Dutton Ranch
Pinot Noir

  • A silky-textured, fruit-forward Pinot Noir with hints of vanilla, cola and cinnamon spice from oak aging.

We sourced our Pinot Noir from the esteemed Dutton Ranch vineyards this vintage. These vineyards are under the care of the Dutton family who’s been farming these vineyards for five generations. Their intricate knowledge of every lot and the nuances possessed by each clone ensures that all the fruit grown here has been cultivated to its highest level. The soil is comprised of sandy loam and some clay, which accentuates the fruit’s intense aromatics. The cool, foggy mornings and warm days allow the grapes to ripen slowly and retain an ideal level of natural acidity so that the wines are perfectly balanced.
