January 8, 2017 - Drinking well, but just noticing the start of some oxidative notes in the wine. I prefer crisp and fresh sparklers, which this is, but I believe it is just starting to show more notes of aging.
November 6, 2014 - Lovely intense but super fine bubble structure. A web of bubbles in the glass they were so fine.
Great lovely melon, light toast and almond butter. Palate is absolutely stunning. So much length and firmness.
Lively finish that is quite complex. Darker tangerine and some light caramel notes on the back end. Great bottling.
Recommended. A great affordable way to celebrate with a rarer bubbly from a ultra premium California producer.
April 14, 2014 - From Magnum. Served very cold. Light straw color, long, intense stream, med size bubbles. Exceptionally fresh/intense fruit. Fooled me completely as I thought it textbook Chard but in fact, Pinot. No stem or skin time with juice. Nice stuff, more of a crowd pleaser, but with plenty of backbone. Nothing off.
April 12, 2014 - Light, fruity, long lasting bubbles, tart but not overwhelmingly so, low acid, light alcohol, very nice. I wish I had more.
April 7, 2014 - Drink ASAP. Still nice and delicate but beginning to loose it's flavor
January 1, 2014 - Extraordinary. Yeasty nose of green apple and pear. Flavors carry through the palate. Crisp, dry finish. Unique.
July 26, 2013 - stunning. excellent very precise acidity. will revisit.
July 20, 2013 - Clear with white tiny bubbles. Tight lime and flowers on the nose. Secondary tangerine and yeast. Lite body and hyper-focused on the palate. Devine, bright citrus fruit. Superb yeast integration…soft textures without the cloying baked notes. Loads of floral action on the back. Super structured. Long finish. Glad I have another bottle.
June 7, 2013 - Not as special as I was expecting. Fine bubbles, nice color, but bland. Lacked the "yeastiness" of a great champagne.
February 22, 2013 - green apple flavors, with mild yeast notes
very good sprkler
