Green apple. Quite one dimensional but nice acidity. Paired with a bruschetta with some sweet aged balsamic vinegar. #wbc18

Toast notes with a little tree fruit (pear). Lime entertains the palate with a simple, short finish.

My least favorite of the line up. Powerful carbonation kills any nuance. Clear, driving and angular palate but not bad.

I attended a tasting that featured a Royal Cuvée vertical hosted by winemaker, Steven Urberg last week. It was fascinating to see the evolution of the style of this Sonoma Brut, but also to taste wines from vintages spanning more than 20 years. The 1987 is mature, slightly austere, and sports higher acidity than the rest. It's dark gold, with notes of walnut skins, caramel, dried apples and apricots, sultana, and wet dough. At this stage the mousse is ultra fine and waning, but still lovely. 12% ABV | Sample

Hey, not bad. You get some apple and pear. You get a little yeasty bread (let's not call it brioche). You get lots of fine bubbles. No regrets opening this anytime.

[Note: One should not have regrets opening sparkling wine of any quality at any time for any reason. More bubbles in our lives, please!]

Bubbles with dessert. Straightforward, hint of sweet, nut, cream. A reliably good drinker.
