Reviews and Ratings

Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

No wimpy rose!
Brilliant pink in the glass, with heady aromas of strawberries, lime and basil carry through to a zippy citrus finish, that packs a punch.
Lovely with pasta carbonara.
Tasted April 2018.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A great value rose with strawberry, raspberry and floral notes. A touch of spice and a citrus edge give a nice finish. Tasted Sept 2018 and paired with grilled pork chops.
Francis Coppola Sofia 2017 is a medium-bodied rosé produced from Syrah and Pinot Noir wine grapes and a gift to his daughter Sofia, who inspired it. This pretty rosé is elegant with rose petal florals, ripe strawberry and cherry flavours finishing with a gentle citrus zest and soft spice -- just a lovely sipper. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
