Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Silver Label Pinot Noir 2009, Monterrey County, CA - $44

This was the second wine we had at Coal Vines. It is 100% Pinot Noir. It retails on the winery's website for $20/bottle. It's marked up to $44/bottle at the restaurant.

Aroma - tart red cherries
Taste - tart red cherries, black tea, dry, slightly bitter finish

A good Pinot Noir, but not as nice as first.

Update - June 4, 2012

This time I purchased this wine at Central Market for $15/bottle.

Aroma - red fruit, spice
Taste - red fruit, spice, soft to moderate tannins, dry, good acid, light sweet tobacco

Nice for the price! Good with pesto pasta/shrimp/bacon/feta cheese.
