Lightly yeasty and toasty scents meld with notes of hazelnut and dried orchard fruits on the nose. In the mouth this is a bit coarse with an intense core of fruity apple, nectarine and citrus fruits. The finish is pretty short but offers a hint of marzipan to help add some contrast. 86pts

This is a really nice inexpensive bottle. Notes of yeast on the nose and on entry, followed by crisp apple and sour dough. Overall, this bottle was very elegant for this price point.

This is a really dry sparkler with yeasty, tart sour apple notes. I personally really enjoyed this wine.

This is my wifes go to sparkler. It has a good balance of yeast / toast and acidity.

Soft and creamy with floral tropical fruit aromas and modest flavors. Drink now.

This medium-to-full-bodied sparkler has a mouthfeel that is at once gravelly and richly smooth andmdash; go figure. Granny Smith apples and granite-slate aromas play on the nose; on the palate, the same Granny Smith notes are swathed in dusty-earthy flavors. Though the back palate shows a little toast and cream, the wineandrsquo;s finish is more zippy, tangy citrus than oaky.

Delicate floral and subtle black cherry aromas lead to a complex Pinot Noir flavored wine, with black cherry, cranberry and spicy notes that are lively.

Balance and elegance, with nutty flavors and hints of brioche; flavors of buttered wheat toast and apples; solid wine and good value.

A crisp, balanced bubbly that offers plenty of honeyed flavors of peaches, pineapples and smoky vanilla. The yeasty, doughy notes are just fine.

Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. When you taste Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hint

Winemaker's Notes:

étoile Rosé sparkles with a brilliant salmon color, bold yet refined berry flavors and excellent richness and length. A small amount of Pinot Noir is added prior to tirage, or secondary fermentation, to create its deliciously distinctive color. The wine is aged for a minimum of five year sur lees to add complexity and sophistication. Fruit sourcing is from our most prized vineyards in Napa and Sonoma.

Tasting Notes:

In keeping with the traditional ros_ winemaking method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine is elegant and restrained with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and nutmeg. These aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods.
