8% Chardonnay, seven to eight hours skin contact, Red berry, cherry character on the nose is also a bit earthy and spicy. Starting off with a little raspberry fruit, this has a lovely texture, nice midpalate depth with real red fruit character and hints of tangerine followed by a lemony edge of acidity on the backend which shows hints of of creaminess and sweetness. Very attractive with nice fruity complexity. 89pts

A bit jammy on the nose, with deep notes of carob and dried citrus fruits, orange and grapefruit underpinning the apple and toast aromas. A touch coarse in the mouth and touch obviously sweet on entry, this is rich and meaty with apple flavors that show flashes of dried strawberry and pear fruit, extending over the moderately long finish. Certainly a popularly styled wine. 87pts

This sparkling wine is soft yet flavorful. Hints of grapefruit and citrus complement its slightly sweet character. Some acidity gives it a finish that is respectable in length.

This wine is a faint pink to yellow color in the glass. Delicate berry flavors on the palate. Decent level of dryness with well-defined acidity.

Interesting ripe fruit (apple, hint of strawberry) on the palate. At 10-15gm of sugar, it is perhaps a bit too sweet. Perhaps in a non-tasting setting (such as a celebration), the sweetness might have not been as noticeable. Beautiful tiny, aggressive, and long-lasting bubbles.

Quite a reliable non-vintage. Pleasant bubbles and a light, consistent flavor throughout with hints of strawberry and blackberry.

More full-bodied than the wineryandrsquo;s brut, this Pinot Noir-based bubbly also is richer. Itandrsquo;s just beautiful in raspberries and strawberries, with brighter touches of lime, and although the wine has a honeyed sweetness, itandrsquo;s zesty acidity makes it finish dry.

Thereandrsquo;s a lot going on for the price in this honeyed, rich blush wine. Pinot Noir gives hints of strawberries, while Chardonnay contributes limes and oranges. The result is a smooth, crisp sipper for drinking now.

Fun and festive, with floral raspberry and graham cracker aromas leading to crisp and succulent lemon and strawberry flavors. A reliable value in California bubbly. Drink now.

Pale salmon colored. Medium body, acid and fruit. Apples, berries, peaches. Good weight with focused but delicate berry flavors in a crisp, spicy structure that lasts.

Medium straw hue. Generous aromas of peach and apple follow through well on a moderately full-bodied palate with broad, fruity flavors lingering in the finish. The upfront fruit of Pinot Noir comes through strongly on this Brut.

Wins points for its understated elegance and subtle hints of ripe cherry, rose petal, spice and citrus notes. The finish is refreshingly clean and offers enough complexity to tempt you for a second glass. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Blanc de Noirs is predominantly made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir grapes, the hallmarks of which are a vibrant red fruit character. The creamy palate and rosy hue are a result of a small addition of Vin Gris, which was blended into the base cuvée. Over forty different clones and selections of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are planted on our 340-acre estate in the Sonoma Carneros district. This allows us to consistently produce cuvées with complexity and clear fruit expression. • Whole cluster pressed to avoid bitter compounds • Juice is naturally settled overnight (débourbage) to encourage a clean fermentation. • Proprietary yeast used for the secondary bottle fermentation provides a delicate house signature from year to year. • The cuvée is a blend of 18 different base wines fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. • Five to seven percent cold-soaked Pinot Noir juice (Vin Gris) is blended into the base wine for color and to establish the creamy notes in the finish. • The wine spent a year and a-half en tirage (on the yeast). • Small and numerous bubbles are encouraged by autolysis, the process by which yeast imparts complexity and a yeasty character to the wine. The autolysis particles provide sites for the formation of the mousse. • After disgorgement, the wine was balanced with a dosage of 1.3 g/100 mls.

Tasting Notes:

Bright strawberry and black cherry aromas with subtle vanilla highlights. Creamy cherry, lemon and cola flavors combine with a lush palate, small, lively bubbles and a persistent finish.
