December 20, 2015 - Decent stuff for the price. Some pear and toast. Reasonably refreshing.
June 27, 2015 - Decent cava. Musky citrus, toast.
June 4, 2012 - Lemon curd nose with grapefruit, white fruits, some floral nuances, a touch of baking spice, slight almond bisquit and rubbery toast.
Lightbodied and quite dry on the palate with refreshing acidity balancing the citrusy sweetness. Cooling wide moussé. Some bitter character leading to a finish of rubber, almonds and maccadamia.
A good Cava - cooling, refreshing and citrusy with some toast accents. The dosage works here pretty well.
December 14, 2011 - Brightened up from the Subirats and with more clarity. Big bubbles. Works at $15 or so.
July 11, 2011 - Meh - this one, served at cellar temp, was a bit appley and simplistic. No real cut to the wine, perhaps it needs more of a chill?
June 13, 2011 - A recent bottle blew away a prior one I had, perhaps it was damaged in some way. In any event, a solid cava and worth a pickup for less than $15.
May 8, 2011 - Nice and dry, good effervescence, light and very clean finish. Fell flat on fruit development, no one fruit put itself in the limelight or developed too much character. Solid enough cava for the $ though.
March 15, 2011 - I've had this once before and generally felt the same way about it the second time. The flavors here are muted and lifeless, so this is best served very cold or in a cocktail. There is nothing offensive about this cava, but you can find better proseccos and cavas for the price.
January 4, 2011 - Solid acidity and light rolling effervesence.
August 5, 2010 - Extreme effervescence and evaporative cotton on first taste. There's a bit of coarse, uneven sugar content that gets a nip sticky and raw, but otherwise this is crisp and lemon-like. I'm not sure, however, for the price that I would seek this one out again. it just wasn't exemplary.
