“… this wine clearly shows plenty of development in its light golden color and its expansive, yeasty, toasty aromas nicely backed up by still-vital lemony fruit. It carries an attractive, creamy mousse and, if somewhat full in feel, the wine is very well-balanced. It is in no danger of drying out despite its somewhat advanced style and will serve well with lighter foods.”

“This clear, pale yellow wine’s charming aromas of toast, apple, hazelnut and caramel pointed the way to refreshing flavors of vanilla, pear apple and apricot. Light-bodied and briskly acidic, it ended with a lengthy, creamy finish. Food Friendliness: A fresh herb-crusted salmon would be an excellent partner for this sparkler.”

“Eighty bucks is a big ask for a California sparkler. This wine offers a big answer. It is seriously deep in aroma and flavor, yet it is hardly a mere fruit bomb, offering layers of interesting complexity that is no doubt largely the result of a lavish six years of ageing. A mix of Pinot-based fruit from different sources may also be at work; this is drawn 46 percent from Napa County, 38 percent from Mendocino County, 12 percent from Sonoma County, and 4 percent from Marin County. Full-bodied for a sparkler, with lots of intricate, lees-based notes, this is a wine to savor and study as it develops once opened, but it will also stand up to real food.”
