This wine of tremendous complexity and length is made from two esteemed and venerated Yountville vineyards: 78% Pinot Noir from California Soleil and 22% Chardonnay from Two Rivers, a classic example of excellent New World Sparkling Wine.
Gabriel Geller: A blend of 78% Pinot Noir and 22% Chardonnay. Pale orange towards pink salmon in color, this wine shows fine bubbles dancing harmoniously in the glass. On the nose, notes of ripe peaches, pears, lemon as well as freshly baked brioche and a hint of vanilla. Light to medium-bodied with
a soft and refined mousse, the palate showcases flavors of stone fruits, raspberries, baked pears, toasted bread, bracing acidity and pink grapefruit with a very distinctive touch of citrus pith and a dollop of cinnamon on the long, elegant and satisfying finish. This is a delicious, complex and beautiful sparkling wine! Jay Buchsbaum: Pale rose, slight bronze color with tiny bubbles. Nose of yeast and fresh earth. This is a serious wine that needs food; rich on the palate. Perfect for turkey and cranberry sauce, great wine for any festive meal. Excellent job, rich middle mouth. Delicious.
It presents aromas of lemon, grapefruit, strawberry, and white chocolate with hints of melon, tea, and toast. On the palate is an even more complex combination of flavors, including peach, tropical pineapple, grapefruit and pink grapefruit, berry, chocolate, tea, and bread, with a long, satisfying finish.
