Wine Wednesday: Sofia Rose

by Ted Scheffler
- Posted // 2013-12-04 - At this time of year, we're in the hunt for versatile wines to serve at holiday parties. And, although Rosé wines might not be an obvious choice when it's snowing outside, Rosé and blush wines can be real crowd-pleasers at festive occasions.

One of my favorites is Sofia Rosé Monterey County 2012 ($16). It's produced by Coppola Winery and named for Francis Ford's Coppola's daughter.

The stylish, shapely bottle makes Sofia Rosé an attractive holiday gift or wine to bring with you to a party. And, its light, refreshing style makes it a slam-dunk as an aperitif or served with hors d'oeuvres and lighter fare.

Coppola harvests its Rosé grapes at a relatively low brix level, which helps to create a light, versatile wine. Before being separated from their skins, the grapes are cold-soaked for two days, after which the skins are removed from the juice. Cool-temperature fermentation assures the crisp acidity that makes Sofia Rosé a food-friendly, quaffable wine.

Pomegranate, spice and strawberries on the palate accompany fruity cherry and strawberry aromas in this vivid, pomegranate-colored Rosé.

Hunt down some Sofia Rosé for the holidays; I think you'll like it.
