Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Just as its nicely made Blanc de Blancs sibling wins the nod for fine value, so too does this very friendly Blanc de Noirs. Redolent of strawberries, sweet citrus and a bare bit of cherries, it holds yeastiness to a slight whisper and instead sets its course on lots of lively young fruit. Its bubbles arguably quit a little too soon, but it is clean, balanced and an easy quaff.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Blanc de Blancs is a category that seems to hold as many disappointments as successes, and good values are not easy to find. This nicely made wine scores well on both counts, first as a clean, crisp, true-to-type effort and then as a particularly good buy. It is frothy and foamy and very light on its feet, and, while a bit limited in reach, it reminds that delicacy is far from being the same thing as thinness.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Even though older, this bottling shows none of the benefits that age should bring. It is simple, slightly candied and surprisingly low on champenized richness with an odd note of tinny bitter-ness coming on in mid-palate and big, coarsening bubbles that disappear in a flash.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now.

Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. It may have been made by the Champagne method rather than Charmat, but this coarsely bubbled effort would be very hard-pressed to prove it. It is slightly sweet at entry and then pinched off by lemony acids, and its finishing mix of bitterness and sour citrus will win it few fans.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now.
