Brut Rosé, North Coast – 2012 – Schramsberg 2012 Rosé sparkling wine – St. Helena Star
“This is a wine that makes the occasion. Frothy bubbles, rich red strawberry and cherry fruit with zesty lemon citrus; it is hard to imagine any other wine being able to top this one for sheer pleasure.
“Pinot noir dominates the blend, giving this 2012 sparkler a firm structure along with its sumptuous fruit. The rich body and full flavor let it pair well with anything from gooey cheese-laden appetizers to roasted meats. Just having this bottle on the table adds a tinge of excitement for things to come. Tasting it confirms that the fun has begun.”
