Very Chablis-like, this coastal Chardonnay has high acidity that makes it clean and vibrant. The flavors are marked by minerals and Meyer lemons, with a touch of smoky oak. It’s a fine, dry white wine that will pair well with a wide range of foods, and it’s from Francis Ford Coppola.— S.H.
A little one-dimensional, but elegantly structured, with crisp coastal acidity and finely meshed tannins. The flavors of this regional-style Pinot Noir veer toward early drinking cherries, rhubarbs, pomegranates and cola.— S.H.
