Blanc de Noirs, North Coast
Bold in texture and flavor, this wine offers toasty, lightly smoky aromas that segue to vanilla, toasted almond and baked apple flavors. The pinpoint bubbles tighten the texture just a bit for good balance before a creamy midpalate and finish take over.
This has attractive complexity with honey, chamomile and toasted bread, ahead of bright, light pink grapefruit and berries. The palate has a very succulent and juicy feel with the same blend of pink-fruit flavors. Fresh crunch of acidity. A blend of 81% pinot noir and 19% chardonnay. Drink now.
