Schramsberg Vineyards Champagne Blend North Coast Mirabelle Brut Rose 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Wine Spectator: With a pretty pink-salmon color, this Pinot Noir-based blush is rich and full-bodied. It has considerable weight for a bubbly, but the acidity and freshness and yeasty tang lift it up to Champagne elegance. Impossible not to fall in love with this raspberry-scented beauty, but why wouldn’t you want to? (Dec 2010)

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

'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.'

93 Points - Wine Spectator"A ros with serious intentions, it has a delicate pink hue and floral aromas of strawberry and spicy yeast rolls. The flavors show good focus, offering raspberry, Gala apple, ginger and fig flavors. Drink now through 2012."Winemaker's notes:The Mirabelle Brut Ros is a specially crafted blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Schramsberg's select cool-climate vineyards in Carneros, Anderson Valley, and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas of Northern California. Pinot Noir lots, including a few fermented with skin contact, provide brightness of berry fruit and body, while Chardonnay lots lend length and zest to the palate. Additional flavor depth and aromatic complexity results from the blending of base wine lots aged in barrels and tanks for one or more years. The finished Brut Ros exhibits fresh, elegant and toasty aromas that lead into lively and delicious fruit flavors on the palate.
