Coppola Sofia Rose’ On My Sunny Porch

There is just something about sitting at a little outdoor café with the warm sun filtering through the trees that calls for a glass of refreshing dry rose’.  During my week in Key West, where the temperatures were in the mid- to upper-70’s every day, sipping glasses of rose’ happened!  A Lot!

But, all vacations must come to an end, and I returned to Iowa right smack in the middle of winter’s bleakness.

The pink hue of the Sofia Rose’ promised to whisk me back to warmer, brighter times.

It’s elegantly-styled bottle made me want to don my party frock–well, it WAS my birthday after all!

HERE IS THE WOW!
The color exudes pretty pinkness, created by cold soaking the grapes (65% Pinot Noir and 35% Syrah) for 48 hours to extract lots of color.

Aromas are full of fruity cherries, tangerines and flowers.  On the palate, fruits continue with more cherries, as well as strawberry and a nice kick of citrus.  Bright acidity brings a fresh, clean finish.

The Sofia Rose’ is perfect for sipping in the cool shade on a warm lazy afternoon.  Even though I was on my Iowa porch, if I closed my eyes, I could almost transport myself back to that sunny café in Key West.

THIS WINE IS A WOW! FOR:
Warm-weather daydreaming
A sunny birthday brunch
Anyone who enjoys a light wine with fruit and a balance of fresh acidity with no sugary sweetness.
