Korbel Rouge 2006
Korbel Rouge is a medium-dry champagne created from Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. First launched in the 1930s, its distinctive red color and aroma and flavor of intense black cherry, strawberry and plum are still a classic choice. Approximately 1% by weight dosage keeps it as dry as the Korbel Brut but removes any tannic bitter edge. It teams perfectly with hearty pastas, red meats and robust seafood dishes. It is excellent with a holiday turkey dinner.
Korbel Winery was established by Bohemia-born Francis Korbel and his brothers, Joseph and Anton, in 1882 and is the oldest continually operating champagne house in North America. KORBEL California champagnes are the product of a passionate devotion to the wine-making craft, generations of experience and expertise, and an uncompromising standard for excellence.
