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.

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.
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.
Fruit-forward, lushly-textured Pinot Noir expressive of sunny days and cool Pacific nights. Purple garnet in color. Aromas of raspberries, rose petals and tea leaves, and flavors plums, strawberries and allspice.
The colour is golden sunshine with aromas of tropical fruit mingling with pears. On the palate cantaloupe, crisp apple, and oak with a subtlehint of vanilla and creme brulee on the 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.
Bright and balanced, highlighted by juicy apple, cantaloupe and pear flavors enveloped in a creme brulee finish.
This Zinfandel offers texture and body plus an exotic perfume of berries, cherry liqueur and anise. Sweet, juicy impressions of plums and mixed berries mingle with notes of chocolate and nutmeg. You'll also detect a hint of sandalwood.
