Slightly smoky on the nose with notes of mineral and yeast accenting the sweet smelling cherry fruit of the nose. This is touch simple in the mouth with lots of red fruit and a touch of yeast all getting a lift from a touch of VA. A touch on the sweet side and with decent length. 86pts

Very nice nose with a touch of chalk, some funghi notes, hints of torrone candy, and sandy soil top note. On the palate this is very fresh though the dosage is a bit on the high side accentuating the sweetness of the fruit, which is fantastically ripe, luscious and delicious. 89pts

Nice light strawberry aromas, touch of sweetness and a good fresh acidity and effervescence. Mellow, smooth, but with enough fruit to keep things interesting.

Not much to see here, definitely don't agree with Wine Spectator on this one. Sort of like Dan Quayle: reasonably smart, but appears moronic compared to everything else that's available.

light pink almost peachy in color. take a salty margarita, an unripe yellow grapefruit and some green strawberries and put them in a blender. Add club soda and you get this dry brut. very lovely afternoon drinker.

Usually don't like demi-sec but this is nice. Nose had tropical fruit for me and that was unexpected. Taste had honey and almond. Very enjoyable.

This is Mumm Napa's workhorse brut. It's a beautiful sparkling wine that satisfies that basics of elegance and lusciousness. Shows raspberry, lime, brioche and smoky flavors, with a slightly sweet dosage and a refined mousse.

Winemaker's notes: This hugely popular award winning wine offers touches of vanilla and melon with firm acid and crisp structure. Medium bodied with excellent mousse and a rich lingering finish it is equally at home with a plate of iced oysters fried calamari chicken or a favorite pasta with a mild sauce. `Mature aromas of char yeast and flint with fruit notes in the background. Beautifully aged flavors of baked apple and flint are seamlessly integrated and deftly delivered. Long dry yeasty close.`-Wine News

Luscious and festive, this rosé has a light pink color, with floral strawberry and cream aromas followed by succulent raspberry, graham cracker and mineral flavors that have a crisp finish. Drink now through 2015.

Clean, light scents of pinot noir grapes give this a simple line. Itandrsquo;s on the soft side of dry. For aperitifs.

Here is a full-flavored, aggressively effervescent sparkler that fills the mouth. A slight copper tint in the wine’s appearance is evidence that it was made from a high percentage of black grapes, specifically pinot noir. Its aroma is reminiscent of freshly baked biscuits — the yeast-produced flavors are then balanced by freshness in the mouth. Quite tart at the full finish, with a touch of cherry flavor from the pinot noir. Carneros figures prominently in Mumm’s cuvées. Winemaker Greg Fowler aims for freshness with this wine, and he gets it.
