Wine Review: If you are looking for a Very Good sparkling wine for the holidays that won't break the bank, we found one. This wine comes from New Mexico of all places. On the palate, this sparkling wine is dry and very refreshing. This is a pleasant and affordable sparkling wine. Enjoy this delightful wine. – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The rich and toasty character of our Blanc de Noirs is balanced and superb. Aged for two-year minimum, the palate is developed and shows rich complex flavors. The amazing berries aromas and the creamy texture play a leading role and create a great finesse. Winemaker's Note: A fine salmon color, aggressive mousse and a lovely fruity wine with plenty of immediate charm and toasty aromas. There is also an explosive juicy flavor of raspberry.
