    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Carneros-designated Blanc de Noirs has a delicate copper color and fruit aromas of strawberry and cherry overlaid with warm cocoa from Pinot Noir. Its softer cousin Pinot Meunier contributes a warm spice, almost clove character with overtones of orange peel and freshly baked bread. To enhance this Cuvee 391, wines from the 1991 vintage were blended with selected 'vin de reserve' held back from previous years. 1991 was characterized by cool conditions during maturation and harvest, critical to flavor development for sparkling wine. Three years of aging lends this wine breadth and body, while retaining its freshness and fruitiness. The balance is stylishly crisp, reflecting the Carneros region's full ripe flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    While this bubbly is technically dry, it tastes sweetly infused with the essence of strawberries and vanilla. The mouthfeel is fine, with gentle scouring of acidity and the slight sourness from its lees. Drink it now with almost anything, especially sushi.

    Delicious small, sweet bubbles with nice grapefruit, acidity on the palate. Will definitely purchase again and again and again!

    Our co-favorite sparkler (with Roederer's Blanc de Noirs). This CA sparkling wine has a harmonious blend of citrus, bread dough and spice that is great by itself of with lighter foods. Fairly priced.
