B50!! Crisp, fresh, elegant, long finish. Greatest American sparkler. Matches any champagne in this price range. Delicious. Wine Spectator 95 points rating seems reasonable (Tim Fish).

Another vintage sparkler - 2009 vs 2011 - awesome. Great for June-50 toast.

Roederer is my favorite CA sparkling winemaker, and this was my first vintage Champagne. Delicious! Finely balanced.

A few of us stopped by the wine storage facility today to “celebrate” the 4th in style...wine style. American zins and American Sparklers. Happy 4th 🇺🇸

Wow! Happily pleased and fairly surprised by this. This was my contribution. Had an ‘06 last year which was tasting really great but this ‘07 was a level above. Next to Ultramarine and the Reserve Schramsberg Sparklers, this is one of the best domestic Sparklers I’ve had, especially at the price ($50). Nose was grilled honeycomb, baked yeast and a small bit of limestone. Extremely creamy on the front palate...bubbles were so incredibly tiny. Multiple bubble strings. Wonderful lemon bread palate, with a crisp, chalky finish highlighted by grilled pineapple. This is an excellent US version of champagne.

Buttload of buttered toast, pecan, marzipan, and some overwhelmed golden pear. Delicious in small doses.
