Wine from my collection: Francis Coppola Pinot Noir

(I've reviewed the Coppola Petite Sirah here.) Yes, that Francis Coppola. You know him better as Francis Ford Coppola, director of Apocalypse Now and The Godfather. His winery produces thoroughly competent mid-range wines. The pinot noir retails for around $17.99, but I found it on sale for about $12.

It's a good, all-purpose pinot noir. Not the most fruit-forward, but still tasty and very quaffable. I'm not sure I'd pay full retail for this--it's not special enough, in my opinion, to warrant a near-$20 price tag--but on sale, it's a good buy.
