An exceptional sparkler with depth richness and finesse. Offers distinctive aromas of lemon fresh ginger and rubber that lead to flavors of custard raspberry and spice. The finish is crisp and lively. Drink now through 2014. From California.

This is the winery's top brut and what a gorgeous wine it is. Blended equally with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay it shows lime tangerine and strawberry flavors that are subtle and rich. The mousse is very fine giving it a silky texture. Beautiful to drink now. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast.
