Coppola Sofia Riesling 2008
Our original Sofia sparkling wine was created as a gift from a father to his daughter as a celebration of love and beauty. Francis Coppola Sofia Riesling continues this tradition by bringing you a wine that is equally graceful, provocative, and alluring. Riesling is a highly impressionable grape that can taste vastly different depending on where it's grown and what level of ripening has been achieved. In fact, this varietal can be crafted in styles ranging from bone dry to extremely sweet. Because we want our Sofia Riesling to pair well with a variety of foods, we have created an off-dry style that has just a touch of sweetness offset by a crisp natural acidity in order to maintain a good balance on the palate.
are you kidding....who wrote these tasting notes and feed back....Sofia or Francis??? Pass and go straight to another producer that can produce something .....fresh and crisp??? moldy and mushy.....that would be better....little hint...if it is purchased at costco.....and you need a fork lift to get into your car...it is probably not that drinkable. Coppola is great at putting labels on bottles, however the quality of what goes in there is SOOOO in need of reality that the book does not match the cover. Beyond smelling great,,,,,it leaves alot to be desired. Notes to Wine Maker.....keep trying....
Very refreshing. Ordered a bottle to go with seafood. Paired very well.
A little bit sweet, this was highly drinkable. Low in tannins. Crisp and refreshing.
Stay away from this wine. So inviting I drank almost the entire bottle by myself while preparing dinner. Purchased for considerably less at our local Costco.

Food Pairings for Coppola Sofia Riesling
The debut release of Sofia Riesling has an alluring personality, showing off full, ripe fruit flavors that are contrasted by a vibrant acidity. Our 2008 vintage offers an intoxicating perfume of pears, minerals, and apricots along with luscious flavors of white peaches, green apples, and a hint of pineapple.
<p>Off-dry in style, this Riesling made by the Francis Ford Coppola winery has an intoxicating perfume of pears and apricots, along with luscious flavors of white peaches, green apples, and a hint of pineapple. The grapes for this wine were grown in the cool vineyards of Monterey County where moderate daytime temperatures and prevailing fog lengthen the growing season by causing the grapes to ripen more slowly. </p>
