Wine Review: This wine finished in 5th place in our recent blind tasting of sparkling wine. This light yellow wine with tiny bubbles opens with a shy nutty and doughy bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, shows some acidity, and has green apple flavors with hints of honey and walnuts. On the finish the wine is dry and brief. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "The relatively warm 2004 season delivered a generously flavored Blanc de Blancs with alluring aromas of green apple, citrus and tropical fruits. Rich, tart, Bayview Avenue Carneros Chardonnay form the core, with components ranging from the Marin Coast to the Anderson Valley contributing further depth of fruit. Yeast-derived notes of fresh sourdough and toasted almond blend with hints of crème brûlée. On the palate, this lively sparkler is ripe and crisp with tangy lemon zest early on, progressing to a clean, balanced finish." – Winemakers Hugh Davies and Craig Roemer
