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

On second tasting, I got a citrus herbal nose with cris pear and walnuts on the body. Really enjoyable.

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.

French in origin, this cuvee is now planted and harvested in the warm days and cool nights of New Mexico; the pinot noir is intense and full; a nicely balanced sparkler that works well as an aperitif or with foods.

New Mexico’s Gruet family has been making this crisp, toasty sparkling wine since 1987.

Light and vibrant offering creamy pear and tropical fruit aromas with notes of white chocolate and anise. Drink now.

Bright aromas and flavors of pear and orange blossom; rich on the palate with an extended finish. Vichyssoise.
