Marjainen, pirskahteleva. Hyvä jälkimaku. Voisi sopia juustoille. — 5 months ago
Smells creamy, a bit like meringue. Tastes like creamy lemon. A little bitter nuttiness. Crisp. Pretty good! Solid value @$11. Would definitely recommend for parties, etc. — 2 years ago

Spain, Barcelona - Conca del Riu Anoia (Not Cava, working on unique DO since 2012)
Clear, lighter side of medium gold, steady stream of bubbles.
Clean, lite autolytic character, medium mineral, could develop further
Dry, medium acidity, sleek body, light autolytic notes before notes of saline mineral, even dispersion of delicate bubbles on palette.
Good on its own, better with food, more pronounced acidity saline and autolytic notes with food. bubble basically gone in last pour (1.5 hours). Very much welcomed at my table, very happy.
Old vines in Goblet system from 1964.
Vineyard is an ancient sea bed with fossilized sea shells from way back in the day. Land has been vineyard, and a family estate since 1497 (Raventós and eventually +Codorníu) 1986 Manuel Raventós i Blanc produced the first estate cava.... lots of history, and Biodynamic to boot! — 5 years ago
Thanksgiving orange and elderberry mimosas — 2 years ago
Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and their owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. Ruby with rich berry fruit, citrus and floral spice. On the palate, strawberry and cherry, tangy, with cola and cedar notes adding earthy tones. Bright acidity, soft expressive tannins, long finish ending with mineral and cedar spice. Very nice, drink now & over next 5 years. — 2 years ago
I usually don’t like Cava but it’s not too sweet and has a dry finish! — 4 years ago
