Nice biscuity value sparkler. Straw color. Faint aromas of toasted bread and lemon. Citrus, nutty, and toasty flavors. Fairly impressive complexity, given the price.

Two value selections include the Non-Vintage Mirabelle Brut a blend of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir; it is an outstanding bargain for high-class sparkling wine.

This bubbly is both complex and fun to drink with lemon curd and spicy caramel aromas that lead to crisp but luscious cherry apple and toasty vanilla flavors. Drink now.

Champagne is not only for special occasions; when you have Champagne, it becomes a special occasion. While Champagne is delicious before dinner, it is even better with dinner, and this wine produced by Schramsberg Vineyards of Napa Valley would be a great choice. The yeasty, toasty nose is followed by a creamy, round, medium-bodied taste, featuring good fruit and accented by a crisp finish. Serve with grilled salmon or halibut, or seafood in a light cream sauce. Enjoy the sparkle!

Shows many of the qualities of Schramsberg’s more expensive sparklers except the bubbles aren’t quite as refined. The flavors are rich and satisfying in strawberries raspberries vanilla and toast.

Even and medium-weight, this Schramsberg-owned sparkler has a citrus (but not at all biting) palate, with traces of caramel and Jolly Rancher candy on the back palate. Its bouquet shows pear-tart aromas enveloped in dusty, andldquo;grandmotherandrsquo;s atticandrdquo; notes (or, as one reviewer put it, andldquo;mature, not funkyandrdquo;). The mouthfeel is even and lively, and not too effervescent. Finishes with stony-mineral notes.

Vibrantly crisp, with intriguingly mature accents of baked apple and cinnamon roll. An easygoing quaff. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Mirabelle is Schramsberg’s multi-vintage brut sparkling wine. This young, bright bubbly, principally comprised of Chardonnay, exhibits the crisp acidity and vibrant green apple, citrus fruit that is characteristic of this grape when grown here in the North Coast. Pinot Noir adds body, mid-palate and further depth of fruit flavor. Unlike our vintage bottlings, Mirabelle gains unique depth from the additions of lots aged in barrels and tanks at the winery from prior vintages. These older base-wine lots, which typically form 20% of the finished blend, add significant palate richness and aromatic complexity. As with Schramsberg’s single-vintage sparkling wines, all grapes for Mirabelle are grown in the cool climate pockets of the area, including Carneros, Anderson Valley, and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas of Northern California. The fruit is hand-picked in the early morning hours at optimal maturity. Individual lot fermentations allow the winemakers to carefully select the components that make up the finished blend. After bottle fermentation and about two years of aging en tirage, subsequent trials determine the ideal dosage to finish this brut style. Mirabelle Brut works well as a dry apéritif and is also well-suited as an accompaniment to a broad range of foods, including oysters on the half shell, sushi, baked halibut, cheeses and cream-based pasta dishes.
