 Tasted by esb on 12/19/2010: Holiday Gathering: Still youthful but the light apple pear fruit is now starting to fade slightly into a deeper more integrated generic fruit/yeasty aroma/flavor. Light and crisp in the mouth with good harmony, elegance and class. Overall, nice wine, excellent seafood accompaniment, upside. Consistent notes from several bottles the last 6 months. Very good range. (1969 views)
 Tasted by Barbara B on 7/7/2007 & rated 60 points: The week down the Cape; 7/7/2007-7/13/2007 (Brewster, MA): Simple, salty, short, dilute, light bodied. Never to buy again. (2390 views)
 Tasted by maltedneon on 6/9/2007 & rated 88 points: Soft nose of yeast and dried fruit, with sharp tartness and a burst of bright fruit on the palate (pears, apple) with a smooth finish. The acidity was a bit overwhleming for me, but still a very well-integrated light-bodied sparkler. (2085 views)
 Tasted by dgreg on 12/25/2006 & rated 89 points: I'm not much of a champaigne guy, but this was good. Pear and apples, but subtle, not too sweet like most other sparkling wines in this price range. (2283 views)
 Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 11/11/2006 & rated 88 points: crisp with flavors of pear and granny smith apples. just a little bit of toast. great sparkler for the price. (2298 views)

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.
