Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Zinfandel 2006

coppolazin.jpgI first discovered the Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Merlot at a dinner at Rick and Ann’s. I’m not a merlot person but I, as well as everyone else at the table, really liked it. Later, we enjoyed a bottle with Thanksgiving dinner to great accolades.
I wanted to try other wines from the collection and last night was the turn of the Zinfandel. I didn’t like the wine at all – I found it overly bitter. I’m not sure what else I can say about it, because the bitterness and dryness overwhelmed any other aspect of the wine. I’m not sure what my guests thought of it, because nobody said anything about it (everyone, however, praised the Hess Collection Reserve Cab, reviewed on my next post).
So thumbs down for the Coppola Zin.
