As a person that normally does not go for sparkling wine, I find this Brut from Sonoma Valley quite delicious and count it among some of the best California sparkling wines available. The unique blend of grapes results is a unique taste while the vineyards adherence to traditional methode Champagne standards offer a taste of old world style. Lively and vivacious, it is best by itself as a celebratory sparkling wine, but has the potential to be a great base in mixed drinks such as a Christmas Poinsettia Cocktail or mimosa.
Piper-Sonoma Brut was my personal upgrade from Korbel Brut for my everyday champagne. It is better with food than by itself. I find it dryyy, but not too dry.

A pale gold color, petite bubbles and delicate aromas of ripe apple, toast and peach.
Rustic and rough in the mouth, but shows basic Champagne-style dryness and yeastiness, with pleasant citrus flavors. Good price for an everyday sparkler.
Kicks off with toast, mushroom and earth aromas suggestive of a well-aged blend, then delivers a smooth creamy mouthful packed with rich fruit and earth flavors. Assertive enough to pair successfully with many first courses.
Good price for a bubbly of this quality. Shows a nice spectrum of citrus, yeast and strawberry flavors that finish dry, crisp and clean, if a little rough. Drink now.
