2015 Sommelier Challenge
Francis Coppola's tribute to his only daughter, Sofia.
Sofia wines were first created as a gift from a father to his daughter. Francis Coppola Sofia Red continues this tradition with a wine that expresses Sofia’s fondness for Rhône varietals, especially the blends she frequently enjoys when visiting France.
2013 Sofia Red offers delightful aromas of red cherries, pomegranate, and tea leaves with an alluring touch of tangerine. Soft and plush in the mouth while having a light, graceful balance, there are bright flavors of plums and boysenberries, aromatic spices and a hint of bergamot and cardamom. A lovely pairing for grilled salmon, linguine with pesto sauce or do just like Sofia, pair with dark chocolate with cocoa nibs.
