Vinted & Bottled by
Francis Coppola Presents, Rutherford, California.
Impression of Francis Coppola Rosso Classic, 2004
My view is strap a more fancy
lable on it, put it in a boutique wine shop and sell it for 18
dollars a bottle and no one would even consider objecting to
it. This is just a great tasting red wine with reasonable
complexity that lets you enjoy it whether you are drinking a
glass just to pass the time or having it with a full dinner.
This is a good fun wine you
can afford to drink every day if you want to that will please
your guests and make them feel spoiled.

pair well with just about any typical red wine choices.

anyone who like any red wine. I will be keeping it on hand
all the time but this is not a wine to age drink it in the next
year or two while it still has all its wonderful fruit.
