Good value for a sparkler. Lemon and apple tones. Very dry and drinkable. A great pairing with oysters.

Light floral nose. Delicate yeast, buscuit and dried petals. Tart dry finish of gooseberries and quince. Very good value. Worked well as a Kir Royale style cocktail with Domaine de Canton's ginger liquor

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

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.

Okay, I’m not a huge fan of the retro label (a replica of the original 1981 label), but I sure do love the yeasty, traditional style of the wine, so I guess I’ll let it slide! Bold and doughy, with apple, canned pear and lemon notes. Food pairing: Asian, seafood, spicy foods, poultry Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

…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.

This latest edition... is the best yet.

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 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.

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.
