Schramsberg Vineyards Champagne Blend Napa Valley J. Schram Rosé 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Cremant has bursting tropical aromas of mango, pineapple and papaya, followed by sweet citrus. In addition to the fresh fruit aromas, there is a richness of straight from the oven rhubarb pie. The palate is viscous on entry, with flavors of peach

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).

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

Boldly structured, yet retains a sense of delicacy, with floral strawberry and spice aromas and full-bodied cherry, vanilla and caramel apple flavors that linger on a festive finish.

Winemaker Notes - Juicy strawberry jumps out of the glass, followed by raspberry and cherries. The berry bouquet is complimented by mandarin orange and papaya. The palate has exotic flavors of mango and cantaloupe, followed by mouthwatering citrus. A juicy viscosity leads to a long, lingering finish.

From the first press of Pinot Noir grapes (the second is labeled Blanc de Noirs) in an elegant, refreshing style. Very opulent.
