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.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fresh blend of Syrah, Grenache and Pinot Noir from vineyards located in the Monterey County region. Delicate yet abundant aromatics of light cherries, white flowers, strawberry, and scrumptious watermelon. Yellow plum, green apple, raspberries, sugar snap peas and clementine citrus adds a mouthwatering crisp finish. Acidity is elevated but it comes together nicely with the balanced body. Very dry - would be a nice accompaniment to a charcuterie or antipasto.
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
