August 5, 2016 - December 2015 disgorgement. Yeasty and toasty style; sturdy and frisky, more playful than stylish. Sea breezy flavors are countered by red berry, peach, and shortbread top notes. Has good definition, agreeable acidity, and loads of mineral energy. Good finish. Appealing.

February 14, 2016 - A non vintage wine that I've had for two years. Bright red raspberry and yeasty toast. Great match for smoked salmon.

(NV Scharffenberger Brut Rose Excellence Mendocino County) A moderately aromatic wine with strawberry, cream, and spice. It’s tart and fresh with lemony acidity. Recommended
