I am always surprised that rose is looked down upon. As far back as I can remember, rose was a warm season staple even among the most radical red wine drinkers in my family. I cannot remember a rose that I have enjoyed more than this one. It is a bit soft. However, the flavor of strawberry and golden currant come through loud and clear with no heavy alcohol after taste that is common with most Spanish and French wines of this catagory. I hope Summer lasts forever and the Francis Coppola Sofia Rose never runs out.
