Mumm Napa Santana Brut NV

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

42 months, part of proceeds go to Milagros children's foundation A little orange marmalade and waffles on the nose. This has that crisp baked/ fried dough/toasty thing going on topped with a little caramel and vanilla, cream, and just a hint of spice. Fairly bright on entry, then turning rich and faintly sweet on the palate with tangerine, peach and green apple flavors topped with a spritz of pith lime. There’s plenty of autolytic character though it gets lost in the sweetness which emerges on the finish with a donut edge. a little crispy creme like. 88pts

Four and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

The Santana Brut is a light golden color and offers a beautiful, persistent mousse and fine-textured bubbles. The nose has aromas of honeysuckle, Bing cherry, red apple, and strawberry are highlighted with hints of brioche and warm vanilla. On the palate it is creamy and ripe with tastes of fresh fig, vanilla and honeysuckle and vibrant tones of biscuit, hazelnut, and nutmeg. With elegant acidity, crisp structure and a clean finish this Brut is great with food.

<p>This Napa Valley sparkling wine is special bottling with limited availability &nbsp;made in collaboration with guitar legend Carlos Santana. Santana Brut contains only Napa Valley grapes with the majority from the 112-acre Devaux Vineyard in Carneros.&nbsp;</p>
