I am a firm believer that bubbles should not only be reserved for special occasions (or Sunday brunch). This bottle - a shocking $6-7 price tag for a traditional method sparkler - smells like a sweet dessert wine; apples and pears baked into a pie. The taste, however, is dry and citrusy, if a bit bland. Best for mimosas.

Popping the cork, and pouring the Cava into a chilled glass I noticed a nice straw pale yellow color and gave off a fruit forward style of peach, apple and citrus. Frothy mousse with small plentiful bubbles. Aged for up to 12 months, the Cava was well-balanced, full-bodied, crisp with zesty fruit, minerality, bread tones on a long finish. This is an outstanding, easy drinking sparkler, and presents an alternative to a pricy bottle of French Champagne. Exceptional!

Clear straw yellow color with lively bubbles. Extremely fresh and fruity nose. The palate shows light fruit flavors of ripe peaches and sweet apricots. Nice mouth feel with lively acidity and pleasant finish. Great value. Their Black bottle is a tad drier.
