Schramsberg Vineyards Brut Rose 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The complex and dense nose bursts with red fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry, followed by exotic candied mango, pineapple and papaya. On first taste there are flavors of peach and pineapple, which are complimented by a touch of strawberries and cream. On entry, the palate offers a crisp and quenching acidity, which leads to long and lingering rich flavors." -Winery

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

The new vintage of one of our favorite domestic sparkling rose makers is here, and just as the previous vintages the 2009 Schramsberg 2009 Rose is delicious.
