Schramsberg Mirabelle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Mirabelle brut has a fruitful intensity of apples and pears followed by more mature aromas of candied lemon and pineapple upside down cake that is accentuated by subtle notes of graham cracker and warm butterscotch. Upon first taste tropical flavors

Schramsberg Vineyards Company:
Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade). Eventually the family sold the property, and nothing much of note really happened to it until Jack and Jamie Davies bought the land in 1965. The Davi... Read more
Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade). Eventually the family sold the property, and nothing much of note really happened to it until Jack and Jamie Davies bought the land in 1965. The Davies' were specifically interested in making sparkling wines, but only discovered after moving onto the land that the hot Calistoga hillsides (Calistoga is typically 5 to 15 degrees warmer than the rest of the Napa Valley) were not particularly hospitable to the two grapes essential to champagne, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They set about finding suppliers in other parts of the valley, and produced their first sparkling vintage in 1965. Widespread fame came in 1972, when President Nixon used the 1969 in his toast to China. Schramsberg has been the official sparkling wine of U.S. presidents ever since. Read less

Nice biscuity value sparkler. Straw color. Faint aromas of toasted bread and lemon. Citrus, nutty, and toasty flavors. Fairly impressive complexity, given the price.

I found this to be very simple and enjoyable. Not biting but not overly sweet. Really enjoyed it - would buy again for $30 or less

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Keyed on clean and vibrant young fruit and lightly accented with yeast, this straightforward sparkler is full and frothy with plenty of up-front appeal. It is the kind of wine for light-hearted sipping, and it makes no claim to complexity, but it will be a welcome guest at alfresco lunches when the weather warms up.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Its yeasty, somewhat toasty first aromas suggest a bit of extra age, but the underlying fruit is still on the direct side and speaks to youthfulness. Frothy bubbles and good balance carry the wine nicely across the palate, and it stays true to its champenized roots and lively fruit all the way to a bright, lingering finish.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

'The Mirabelle rose with its delicate peach rose color has generous aromas of strawberries and ripe red berries, with undertones of orange and tropical fruits. Essence of freshly baked peach cobbler and banana creme pie are abundant. On first taste juicy red raspberry and strawberries burst out of the glass. The palate lingers with flavors of lemon tart with a raspberry drizzle. The Mirabelle Rose is lush on entry, with a driving acidity and long finish.'
