Schramsberg Vineyards Producer website
2006 Schramsberg Vineyards Extra BrutWinemaker's Notes: The 2006 Extra Brut has generous fruitful aromas of mandarin orange, cherry and kefir lime, which evolve with hints of custard and roasted almonds. The palate is complex with flavors of raspberry and tart lime, with hints of candied ginger. Crisp on entry, the wine lingers in the mouth with a persistent yet balanced acidity.
Varietal Composition: 84% Pinot Noir, 16% Chardonnay
Champagne BlendThe typical champagne blend is of three grapes - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Wines labeled as 'Blanc de Blancs' are by definition all Chardonnay, and wines labeled as 'Blanc de Noirs' contain Pinot Noir, Meunier or both in the blend.
There are how ever three additional grape varieties planted (Arbane, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc) and used in Champagne, they could be called legacy grapes and do not represent significant portion of the grapes used (<0.01%?). It is not permitted to plant more of these varieties.

California California Wines (Wine Institute of California)
California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
