Schramsberg Vineyards Champagne Blend North Coast Mirabelle Brut Rose 2007
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)
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Schramsberg Vineyards Champagne Blend North Coast Mirabelle Brut Rose
'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.
