Juicy strawberry jumps out of the glass, followed by raspberry and cherries. The berry bouquet is complemented 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.
A terrific blush bubbly, rich and sophisticated in the mouth. The mousse is very fine and silky, and the flavors are just tremendous. Raspberries, strawberries, brioche, sweet vanilla and toast end in a long, opulent swirl of spices. This Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend comes mostly from Napa and Sonoma counties.
Lots of vigorous young fruit is teamed with a good bit of toasty, autolyzed yeast right from the outset here, and, while showing the vinosity and substance that we expect from good Rosé, it is first and foremost a lovely example of careful champenization. It is charged by a wealth of tiny, pinpointy bubbles and it lasts and lasts at the finish, and, as good as it is when sipped by itself, it will show even better when invited to dinner as a foil to a creamy chicken fricassee or grilled salmon steaks.
Delicate as a feather, with lovely strawberry blossom aromas and rich but elegant flavors of raspberry, white chocolate and cinnamon spice that finish with a crisp minerality. Drink now through 2016. 9,400 cases made.
