Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Tried a new NV batch. A blend of 92% Pinot and 8% Chardonnay, pale salmon color, resulting from Vin Gris (white wine made from red grapes). Aromas of red berry fruits and biscuit notes. The palate shows strawberry & juicy cherry flavors with hints of lemon citrus. Tiny lively bubbles, creamy texture, frothy mousse, hints of mineral and yeasty notes show on the medium finish. Great CA bubbly for drinking now.

Tried this 3 years ago, a new NV batch. A blend of 92% Pinot and 8% Chardonnay, this CA sparkler has a slight pink/rose color, resulting from Vin Gris (white wine made from red grapes). Aromas of red fruits and sweet spice are present. The palate shows strawberry & cherry flavors with hints of lemon citrus. Tiny lively bubbles, creamy texture, frothy mousse, hints of mineral show on the medium finish. Nice CA bubbly for drinking now.

Pale rose gold with copious medium-coarse foam. Aromas of strawberries and mellon mingle with nutty toast; the wine spent one and a half years en tirage. It's coarse on the palate with flavors of strawberry and kiwi; fruit-driven and not very dry but its acidity is pleasant and balancing. The wine's lovely color derives from some cold-soaked vin gris of Pinot Noir added to the must. Overall it's a fun and quaffable. Drink it with salty snacks and cheeses. 92% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay, 12.5% abv | $22 (sample)

A blend of 92% Pinot and 8% Chardonnay, this CA sparkler has a slight pink/rose color, resulting from Vin Gris (white wine made from red grapes). Aromas of red fruits and sweet spice are present. The palate shows sweet strawberry, cherry and raspberry flavors with hints of citrus. Tiny and lively bubbles, creamy texture and hints of minerality show on the medium finish. Nice CA bubbly for drinking now.
