    April 28, 2015 - From a half. Strawberry and raspberry fruit, sous-bois, mushroom, and minerals on the bouquet. Dry, mouth-watering delicious palate backed by a serious finish. Crazy QPR!

    April 4, 2015 - Very effervescent. Slightly dark in color. Nose of mostly apple and some citrus. Clean and crisp on the palate. Decent for a sparkling wine, even more so coming from New Mexico.

    March 30, 2015 - Gruet is always a good value in sparkling wine. Nice nose, tiny bubbles and good mouthfeel. Not yeasty. Goes down real easy.

    February 12, 2015 - A bit rough around the edges. A little too much apple flavor for me and color is too dark. Feels a bit heavy. Not as good as it was a few years ago.

    February 6, 2015 - Such a great wine. Tasted alongside a $50 Champagne, this was better.
