A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins and a mature, toasty style. The youthful fruit character of the wine will caramelize and soften with additional age in the bottle. With proper storage, this sparkling wine will be delicious for many years, even a couple of decades to come. My favorite. Every time.

    Bright and lovely, this vivacious bubbly can barely contain the berry and candied citrus aromas that soar up from the glass. The exuberant bouquet is perfect preparation for the decadent palate impression, oozing stone fruits and subtle notes of vanilla and cream.

    Wine Tasting NotesPale in color, with delicate dough, smoke and vanilla notes, but youll find the Pinot Noir in the suggestion of cherries in the aroma, and a red-berry weight in the mouth. This is a beautiful wine, elegant and crisp, filled with balance and harmony and length.

    Ripe flavor and full-bodied, with complex pear, fig, cherry, earth and citrus flavors. Offers depth, concentration and lots of pure fruit flavors. Drink now through 2006.

    Aromas of yeasty dough, cherry and lead pencil turn rich, intense and complex on the palate, where the flavors are concentrated and focused. Ends with a pleasantly earthy mineral edge to the Pinot Noir fruit. Drink now through 2010.

    Exceptionally refined in texture, this is a rich, layered sparkler. Based mainly on Pinot Noir, it has full-bodied nectarine, strawberry and jasmine tea flavors, complexed with bread dough and smoky char. But best of all is that texture, pure silk and satin.

    A rich, vibrant mouthful of a bubbly, with bold, complex aromas of cinnamon, yeasty vanilla, apple and cherry, with subtle spicy flavors that build to a fresh hint of minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Notes on the Schramsberg Blanc De Noirs California 2004 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2004 Blanc de Noirs offers the essence of baked berry, nectarine, dried tropical fruit and cherry blossom with subtle aromas of warm pie crust, biscuit and graham cracker. Hints of guava and tonic lend an exotic note. The creamy mid-palate gives way to a zesty red tropical fruit finish. This bright, quenching wine will develop plenty of character and complexity over time while retaining it's youthful integrity. -WinemakersHugh Davies and Craig RoemerSCHRAMSBERG BLANC DE NOIRS CALIFORNIA 2004
