This is light and bright with a lovely, fresh nose of apples ready for pie, touched with a little lemon and spice and just the faintest notion of butter crust. In the mouth the wine is a bit more linear than the nose would suggest but it offers up a balanced mouthful of moderately intense fruit with good length. 87pts

I liked this wine a lot, and was further surprised that it was grown in New Mexico. It is very balanced and charming, with fine bubbles.

There are some crisp, citrus aromatics combined with tangerine/nectarine characteristics on the palate. Refreshing, easy drinking, a nice wine to bring to a friend's party

Really nice bubbles. Not as much biscuit flavor as I tend to like, but there was some nice light fruit in its place. It's also from New Mexico, so definitely worth a try for the novelty.

tangy lemon scent tart and a bit milky (as opposed to creamy)

Brilliant with ultra fine bubbles. A wonderful fine bouquet dominated by green apple and grapefruit flavors.

A crisp and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of a toasty finish is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor.

Lime, green herb earth and burnt-matchstick aromas open to a toasty, nutty palate with pear, gingersnap and cracker flavors. Medium-weight, with a steady bead and soft mousse. Finishes long, with a citrus-mineral tang. This is complex, tasty bubbly from an unusual address.

A transplanted family from Champagne chose the micro-climates of New Mexico for the richness of the grapes that the area produced. The result is a fine sparkler combining very ripe fruit and a nice round texture.

Full yellow hue. Ripe peach skin aromas have a nice yeasty accent. Pin-point bubbles and intensely zesty fruit flavors play out on a medium-bodied palate with a creamy, tart fruit finish. Well-made and refreshing.

One of my favorite sparkling values in the marketplace and it hails from the unlikely wine territory of New Mexico. The taste is amazingly close to a NV Brut from Champagne. Toasty biscuit, brine and juicy pear and apple flavors are released along with a steady stream of bubbles. A refreshing balance between acidity and fruit with a creamy, yummy mousse. Enticing flavors all combine to create a satisfying, well-crafted wine.
