Sofia is a woman of elegance and class. She was born in Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak, and raised in the heights of her community. She wears a distinct perfume of warm red and black fruit, with just a hint of must, reminiscent of her heritage in Bordeaux. Her voice is soft but proud, and her words linger with you.

Black licorice, chocolate covered raspberries, coconut, and root beer comprise the flavor profile of this decadent dessert.
