Mumm Napa Napa Brut Rose 2006

Member Review by drdebs:

The color is a rosy salmon. There are aromas of yeast, lemon peel, and under-ripe strawberries. Flavors are more reminiscent of those tiny wild strawberries, with a nicely bitter note in the yeasty aftertaste. Good value rose. NB: Still drinking on 2/1 and it gets better as the bubbles tone down and get smaller. Like it better now than when first opened!

92 Points, Wine Enthusiast"Mainly Pinot Noir, with 15% Chard, this pale-pink bubbly is impressive for ripe raspberry-cherry flavors, with a polished edge of bread dough and smoky vanilla. It's quite delicious, finishing dry and elegant."Winemaker's Notes:This soft, fruity sparkling wine captures you at first sight with a lovely, pale pink salmon hue in the glass. Our Brut Rose offers a bouquet of ripe Pinot Noir fruit, rich with black cherry and strawberry notes. Part of the wine is initially fermented in the press, producing the soft fruity character that gives Brut Ros its directness, while a small percentage of Chardonnay gives the wine power and structure. This more robust quality makes Brut Rose a wonderful wine with many kinds of cuisine, ranging from Thai to Italian.
