Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rose 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Slightly herbal and cocoa-dusted on the nose, this shows an almost floral sweetness to the aromas of beefy, plummy fruit. A bit thick on entry, this is soft and a bit fat. Fills your mouth with plush, dark berry and lightly baked plum fruit, accented with a hint of baking spices, vanilla and caramel. It’s an easy drinking, fairly intense wine suited for the cocktail set. 84pts

  Francis Ford Coppola’s love for wine didn’t just sprout up overnight. His grandfather, Agostino Coppola, had a passion for wine back in the 1920s, when he used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment. They weren’t sophisticated wines: they were just everyday wines that anyone could enjoy. Francis and Eleanor Coppola, Francis’ wife, attempted to continue this passion when they purchased their own vineyard in Rutherford, California in 1975 using the proceeds from The Godfather. This plot was a part of the historic Inglenook Winery, and it included the former home of Gustave Niebaum, member of the Culinary Institute of America’s Vintner’s Hall of Fame. After tireless effort by the whole family, the winery produced its first vintage in 1977 under the Niebaum-Coppola label. After many years of success, the family purchased Inglenook Winery in its entirety in 1995. In 2006, the winery was renamed to Rubicon Estate Winery in honor of the estate’s flagship wine. The Coppola family couldn’t stop there - in March 2006, they purchased the former Chateau Souverain winery in Geyserville, California, transforming it into the Francis Ford Coppola Winery. In their first four years, their family of wines exploded from 12 to 45 wines. Corey Beck was made the director of wine-making and the general manager of the winery, and he currently oversees seven wine brands. There are currently 9 lines of wine, each with a different personality and varietal composition. The Sofia line, for example, was created as a gift from Francis to his daughter, and it exudes charm, style, and romance. Read less

This Sauvignon Blanc bestows a silky palate and dazzling perfume of citrus, tropical fruit, and flowers. Zesty notes of lime, tangerine, and pink grapefruit are layered with juicy flavors of peaches and guava-all kissed by a hint of minerals to create a contemporary wine that is luscious and vibrant.

Our Blue Label Merlot has brilliant, deep garnet color with aromas of bright red cherries and clove spice. Supple red plum and black cherry flavors highlight the palate, with subtle notes of light milk chocolate and vanilla bean evident on the long finish.
