Wasn't very good as far as zinfandels go. Too acidic and not enough fruit flavor.

90/100 points. Vibrant bouquet of ripe red fruits with a hint cantaloupe and spice. Deep red color fading to rose and clear at the edges. The body of this wine is displayed with a great onset of lemongrass, black currant, and blackberry. This fades into a mild orange/citrus flavor on the back end. Excellent tannins allow for a fantastic mouth feel that holds out for a strong finish. Mild oaking allows for the quality grapes to express their full potential. I would expect nothing less from a Francis Coppola wine.

External Reviews for Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rose Miscellaneous Usa Red

11/12/2010

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Attractive black cherry fruit combines with a touch of sandalwood and whiffs of dried walnuts and caramelly oak in the wine's aromas, and similarly cast flavors make a good impression on the palate. With a supple texture and but modest tannins that provide some needed grip, this wine is ready to try today alongside grilled burgers.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Boasts a deep purple color and enticing aromas of ripe blueberry, currant, and spice. The palate offers succulent flavors of dark juicy plums, crushed blackberry, and eucalyptus, while a small addition of Syrah adds just a hint of warm spice. Careful aging in small French oak barrels provides a backdrop of sweet vanilla, followed by round, luxurious tannins.

The 2006 growing season was long and cool, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine and mature longer. As a result, this Merlot delivers exceptional concentration and impressive length. To enrich the color, small amounts of Syrah and Petite Syrah are blended in. Then, the wine is aged in small French oak barrels, which lend lovely notes of sweet vanilla to this elegant, full-bodied Merlot.

Our Merlot combines fruit from Napa, Sonoma, and Monterey. The flavors and textures unique to each region harmonize beautifully together to create a wine that has dark, succulent fruit balanced by natural acidity. Intense aromatics of raspberry and blueberry lead to flavors of crushed berries, vanilla, and leather, which are wrapped up in a soft, smooth tannin structure.

A lush and decadent wine with soft supple texture and juicy flavors of cherries, blackberries and spice; full bodied and well balanced on the finish; will pair nicely with braised short-ribs.

Smooth, subtle, and silky; ripe blackberry, fat aromatic blueberry and a medium weight. Perfect with a Tuscan pork tenderloin wrapped in fresh rosemary sprigs.

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMA K ER’S NOT ES We typically harvest Pinot Noir grapes for our Sofia Rosé at a lower brix to ensure a light wine that pairs elegantly with food. Immediately after being picked, the grapes are brought into the winery, crushed and destemmed. For color extraction, the grapes are cold soaked for 48 hours before the juice is separated from the skins. Then, we ferment at a cool temperature in order to retain the crisp acidity that is critical for this style of wine. TA S TING NOT ES The 2007 Sofia Rosé displays a vibrant fuchsia color and an alluring perfume of wild strawberries and rose petals. Bright and refreshing on the palate, this wine offers lively flavors of red cherries, raspberries and candied orange peel. © 2007 Francis Ford Coppola Presents, LLC, world rights reserved. www.ffcpresents.com 200-20074 APPELL ATION: Sonoma Coast BLEND: 100% Pinot Noir ALCOHOL: 11.5% by volume RESIDUAL SUGAR: Dry
