    November 1, 2017 - Napa/Sonoma Trip With Some Exceptional Gems; 11/1/2017-11/5/2017 (1800ft Up Cavedale Road, Glen Ellen, CA): Tasted at the Domaine, 92PN, 8C. Definitely preferred over the Sonoma Brut, much more depth and intensity, Subtle pale red hue, red berries, apple, smooth and lively. 88+ to 89pts.

    July 18, 2017 - 92% Pinot Noir with 8% Chardonnay, but with a smidgen of PN juice adding color and creaminess before fermentation.

    Pale Salmon pink color derived from the added Vin Gris. Fine beads.

    Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, backed up with bready, vanilla notes.

    Structurally, med high acidity, dry, med light body. This wine screams California especially when tasted alongside an entry level Champagne. Fruits are much more pronounced and riper expressing the sunnier NoCal terroir. However, at 12.5 abv, it is still elegant enough for the underlying complexity.

    Great quaffable summer bubble. 89.

    May 29, 2017 - Bottle off the list at Petaluma Sheraton, $38. Golden peach color. Kind of straightforward and obvious, but hits the spot after a long day of travel. Strawberry, apple, sourdough, lime, and a little ginger. Focused, crisp finish and a medium-fine bead. Guessing this is ~$20 retail, in which case it absolutely overdelivers.

    (NV Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noirs Carneros) An aromatic, very clean sparkler full of bright red raspberry, apple, and light bread notes. The palate is medium bodied and quite rich with a fruit filled finish. 92% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay. 12.2% alcohol.
