    January 11, 2015 - Well made, for what it is, but not my style. Picked up the sulphur notes on the nose that Wine Canuck mentioned in his note, and some indistinct fruit. The palate is an odd mix of sweet (predominantly strawberry notes and the high dosage), sour (red apple) and bitter (apricot). Despite what others have said, the acidity is quite good, but it's negated by the almost cloying sweetness.

    December 31, 2014 - Strawberry and apple, some sweetness. Not a lot of acidity or yeast. Very good for the price and perfect for bringing in the New Year at a casual party with friends who enjoyed the bottle but aren't particularly into wine.

    December 29, 2014 - tasty but uncomplicated bubbly that hits the spot! medium body, fine bubbles, and good fruit.

    hints of melon, strawberry, citrus, and even some tropical pineapple along with the expected yeast. ok at $20 and well worth it at $15!

    December 2, 2014 - Very pale pink color. Nice bead, Pleasant aromas of cherry, yeast, and berries. The flavors are consistent with cherry chiffon, berry, yeast, mineral and a bit of zest followed by some anise on the finish.
