Clean and bright on the nose with yeast scents paired with white orchard fruits. On the palate this is noticeably sweet with lots of fruit, pears, and spice tones. It’s very richly fruited and retains a youthful, green grape tone to the mid-palate and onto the moderately long finish. 86pts

I'm not a big Champagne drinker, especially ones from California. Although, I was surprised by this one. It is dry but not overpowering with hints of citrus fruit (possibly lime) and apple. Results in a very enjoyable way to celebrate any occasion especially for the price tag of $8.

Korbel makes 1.3M cases, but practices sustainable farming and even has a new line of Organic products. This wine has great bubbles and a softly sweet buscuit flavor. A very soft and smooth finish with a nice rich mid-palate.

Sweet nose - a typical California sparkler. Soft with sweet fruits, some yeast and buscuit, but ultimately a soft wine. Slightly tart finish.

An easy sparkling wine that outpaces its low price point. We typically keep this one in-house for casual openings...

Classic Korbel brut, elegant, delicate and inexpensive. Nobody does a better job at this price. The wine is dry, with subtle lime, strawberry, peach, yeast and vanilla flavors, and a finish of real elegance. Hard to believe they produced 750,000 cases.

Citrus, apple and anise aromas lead to crisp, easygoing flavors that finish on a toasty, spicy note. Drink now through 2011.

Moderate straw-yellow hue with a steady bead. Tempting aromas of lemon curd and light white bread dough. Creamy mouth-feel with a touch of toast accompanied by pleasant minerality. Light green apple notes round out a cleansing close.

A fun glass of bubbles, showing lively aromas of citrus and cinnamon roll, with crisp flavors of apple, tropical fruit and spiced nuts. Drink now.

Korbel Brut is America's favorite bottle-fermented champagne. It is used to celebrate more weddings anniversaries and New Years celebrations than any other quality champagne. Korbel Brut is light and crisp with spicy fruit flavors. It is finished with a 1% dosage for a balanced medium-dry finish. Korbel Brut is perfect for every celebration and many meals. Try it with chicken dishes oriental foods especially those using lemon grass or mild curries. Korbel Brut is also great served with many fruits and milder cheeses.

One of America?s best-selling bruts, affordable and dependable. They score again with a delicately flavored, dry wine with elegance and finesse.

A nice, dry sparkling wine, showing subtle citrus, cherry, smoke and yeast flavors. It has a good mouth feel and is balanced and crisp.
