Good for the dollars... Dry, clean, and easy to drink. Plus Scharffenberger is fun to say. No? Buy this instead of Korbel.

This lovely Mendocino sparkler, crafted from two-thirds Chardonnay and one-third Pinot Noir, has lilting apple and honey aromas buoyed by a thick head of mousse. There is a pleasing follow-through from aroma to flavor and a core of ripe apple. Dry, soft with a long finish, this is a hard-to-resist food-friendly wine ready to pair widely.

…has a perfume of citrus and vanilla, nuanced with peach and pear. The grapefruit, green apple and peach flavors are very clean, fresh and flavorful.

A delightfully racy sparkler, with tart apple and floral anise aromas leading to zesty lime and lemon flavors, presenting accents of cinnamon and spicy ginger. Drink now.

Never objectionable… Scharffenberger’s Brut is lean at the center with moderate richness, derived from time on the yeasts pulling it back into focus. Mouth-filling with its bubbles but slightly hard in feel and acidy at the finish, this wine needs a service with tangy shellfish dishes to show at its best.

Subtlety more than potency is the message here, and wine’s lean, crisp-edged styling places it squarely amongst those wines that will show best on their own or with the lightest foods. Quiet, but mildly creamy in scent, the wine shows a foamy mousse with plenty of tiny bubbles that sustain nicely, and its crisp, relatively dry flavors carry under- played notes of minerals and green apples that linger in a tart, palate-cleansing finish.

This latest edition… is the best yet.

Very active, pinpoint bubbles; toast and wood dominate the nose; flavors of toast, butter and fresh apples; citrus notes on a long, balanced close; clean; attractive value.
