Francis Ford Coppola White Blend California Sofia Blanc de Blancs 2011
A 2006 blend from the famous vintner & film director that contains zinfandel, syrah, and cabernet sauvignon. Cherry and oak in the aroma. Full and sweet at first, even a little brandy-like. Then it shifts to flavors of fig and prune and a pleasant sourness. Not sharp or bitter, but well-rounded. Surprisingly rich for a red table wine, very nice.
I had high hopes for this red. Unfortunately, it was very thin and watery. It's a little weak on both nose and pallete. Drinkable but there are better wines at $8.
My husband and I really enjoyed this wine. It is very smooth with a slightly smoky taste. Unlike other wines in this price category, it is not acidic at all. We really like this wine and highly recommend it.
External Reviews for Francis Ford Coppola White Blend California Sofia Blanc de Blancs
This Zinfandel is dense and complex, with a touch of Petite Sirah to enhance the flavors of strawberry jam and cassis. The perfume of the wine is dark fruit, sweet spice, and toasty vanilla.
It's crisp, delicate, and elegantly fruity with just a kiss of spice on the finish.We typically harvest the grapes for our Sofia Rose at a lower brix to ensure we get a light wine that pairs elegantly with food. For color extractions, the grapes are cold-soaked for 48 hours before the juice is separated from the skins.
Born from a celebration of love, Sofia wines began as a gift from a father to his daughter. Our sparkling wine, as bright and effervescent as the woman who inspired it.
Fruity and refreshing. Mellow flavors of apples and pears are topped by a hint of citrus and honeysuckle. Elegant in character, this wine is lightly textured and vibrant through the finish.

The Sofia Blanc de Blancs bursts with rich pear, honeysuckle, and exotic passion fruit aromas. Crisp apple, melon, and juicy tangerine flavors fill the palate, with notes of bright lemon and honey evident on the refreshing, mouth-tingling finish.
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.
