Wine Review: This coral colored Brut Rose from the Russian River displays lots of very tiny bubbles. It opens with a pleasant mild strawberry and watermelon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and fresh. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused gentle strawberry and bread dough blend. I also detected a hint of lemon towards the end. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this very good sparkler with shrimp cocktail. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our J Brut Rose sparkling wine has a vibrant, pink salmon hue and offers layered aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apples, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an elegant mouthfeel complements flavors of ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds. Lively acidity and steely minerality frame a lingering, lush finish for this Brut Rose. We recommend pairing this elegant sparkling rose with roasted beet and goat cheese salad, a simple plate of smoked salmon canapes, or blue cheese.
