Light yellow in color. This bottle was back on track. When just opened it acted like a mix of apple cider and Champagne. Continued to open up and add complexity on the nose and palate over the hour. Great with a Cobb salad , fried chicken and blue cheese dressing. Great bubbles. Apple, citrus, tart, toast, and some brioche notes. Very well done. Fair price. Oregon can do sparkling well! Although their newer vintage of the Extended Triage is different in my opinion- more citrus, less apple - I am hoping that if I age it that it will also develop some of these characteristics.
Loved this. Rich and creamy but with great acid, super delicious green apple and lemon curd flavors that persist for up to a minute in the back of the tongue, especially as the bubbles diminish ~50% and it's gets closer to room temp (enjoyed it more like that)
