    April 16, 2016 - Bottle popped open and had a pleasant off-pink color with swirls of bubbles, so looked fine.

    Aroma seemed pleasant enough.

    Flavors not so enjoyable. The fruit mix of strawberry, raspberry and others just wasn't working.

    Made with a mix of pinot noir and a small % of chardonnay, it seemed like the pinot part was off.

    As a fan of the brand in general, this bottle did not appear flawed in any way, and did not meet my expectations of the brand's standards.

    The thing with non-vintage wine is consistency, so that the end user receives the same flavor profile year after year, regardless of the vagaries of each growing season.

    We'll give it another go sometime in the future, but there are a ton of other choices in the segment and it may be awhile.

    December 31, 2015 - Solid stuff overall with spice, pear and grapefruit. Short to medium finish.

    December 22, 2015 - For the price ($15) this was pretty amazing. Of course it is not fair to stack it up against more expensive sparkling wines but it is nice to have something to enjoy in this price range. Clean and smooth without much residual taste. Not overly sweet.

    December 3, 2015 - Consistent with previous notes, sans the anise tonight. The best of the trio of sparklers.
