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.

What a roll Mumm Napa is on with their new releases. This blush wine shows the level of richness and elegance the winery has achieved lately. Made from 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay, it has deliciously forward flavors of raspberries, strawberries, gingersnap cookies and vanilla lemon custard, with the bubbly froth and tart yeastiness of a fine sparkling wine.

More pink than salmon in the glass, the nose is dominated by fresh red berry fruit, with a hint of cherry; the acidity keeps the wine lively on the palate, and the finish is long and balanced; a great example of a roseacute;, the wine has plenty of weight to pair with a wide range of foods.

Crisp and elegantly styled, with floral apple and yeasty spice aromas that lead to layered flavors of baked pear, citrus and creamy vanilla. Drink now.

A bit rough and scoury, but so delicious in flavor, you forgive it. Attracts for its raspberries, rose petals, brioche and vanilla, and the racy acidity cleanses the mouth.

WE 93pts, WS 90pts - Winemaker Notes - Formerly known as the Mumm Napa Blanc de Noirs release, our Brut Ros offers a bouquet of ripe Pinot Noir fruit, rich with black cherry and strawberry notes. Part of the wine is initially fermented in the press, producing the soft fruity character that gives Brut Ros its directness, while a small percentage of Chardonnay gives the wine power and structure. This more robust quality makes Brut Ros a wonderful wine with many kinds of cuisine, ranging from Thai to Italian.

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