Raventos i Blanc

de Nit Rosé Cava Blend 2016

Always amazes me how Raventos makes good sparkling for such a small tag. Tastes like it looks.

Strawberries and whipped cream hanging out for a while.

Agreed! Have you tried the Murgo sparkler from Sicily? Between Raventos and Murgo I no longer need Champagne...

Brut Nature Penedès Cava

Had some if this left over after a tasting at my shop. Fruitier than I expected with honey and apricot aromas and flavors, along with orange and lemon. But as it lingers on the palate the lees aging comes out a bit more with toasty flavors of bread and dough. Bitter finish, medium length. Quite decent. — 24 days ago

Blanc de Blancs Brut Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada

Instead of mimosas, they offered a “bottle and carafe.” Better deal, and really nice mimosas. — 11 days ago
