Schramsberg Napa Blanc de Noirs 2004
Notes on the Schramsberg Blanc De Noirs California 2004 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2004 Blanc de Noirs offers the essence of baked berry, nectarine, dried tropical fruit and cherry blossom with subtle aromas of warm pie crust, biscuit and graham cracker. Hints of guava and tonic lend an exotic note. The creamy mid-palate gives way to a zesty red tropical fruit finish. This bright, quenching wine will develop plenty of character and complexity over time while retaining it's youthful integrity. -WinemakersHugh Davies and Craig RoemerSCHRAMSBERG BLANC DE NOIRS CALIFORNIA 2004
A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins and a mature, toasty style. The youthful fruit character of the wine will caramelize and soften with additional age in the bottle. With proper storage, this sparkling wine will be delicious for many years, even a couple of decades to come. My favorite. Every time.
Beautiful mousse; fine, persistent bubbles on a creamy body. Very round and soft, with a touch of refreshing acidity and some almond and flowery notes.
I tasted this on June 19, 2007. Soft floral nose. Tart finish, light mouthfeel.
Excellent sparkling wine that is light and refreshing. The flavor is complex yet not overpowering. Nice finish.
One of my favorite sparkling wines.
External Reviews for Schramsberg Napa Blanc de Noirs
Bright and lovely, this vivacious bubbly can barely contain the berry and candied citrus aromas that soar up from the glass. The exuberant bouquet is perfect preparation for the decadent palate impression, oozing stone fruits and subtle notes of vanilla and cream.
A rich, vibrant mouthful of a bubbly, with bold, complex aromas of cinnamon, yeasty vanilla, apple and cherry, with subtle spicy flavors that build to a fresh hint of minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
Wine Tasting NotesPale in color, with delicate dough, smoke and vanilla notes, but youll find the Pinot Noir in the suggestion of cherries in the aroma, and a red-berry weight in the mouth. This is a beautiful wine, elegant and crisp, filled with balance and harmony and length.
Aromas of yeasty dough, cherry and lead pencil turn rich, intense and complex on the palate, where the flavors are concentrated and focused. Ends with a pleasantly earthy mineral edge to the Pinot Noir fruit. Drink now through 2010.
Wine Tasting NotesThis wine is dry and crisp with abundant flavors of lemon, apple, pear and pineapple. Small lots of malolactic and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for about three years prior to disgorgement. With its bright fruit and crisp characters, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years following its initial release.
One of the finest sparkling wines made in the United States. With its inviting, open-knit quality, its citrus and tropical fruit aromas, and its subtle framework of vanilla and toasty spice notes, this is simply irresistible.
Exceptionally refined in texture, this is a rich, layered sparkler. Based mainly on Pinot Noir, it has full-bodied nectarine, strawberry and jasmine tea flavors, complexed with bread dough and smoky char. But best of all is that texture, pure silk and satin.
