Wine Review: This pale gold with a tinge of orange colored Sparkling Wine opens a few streams of very fine bubbles. The bouquet features a shy wet stone and bread dough bouquet with hints of strawberry, nectarine pit and lime zest. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with bright medium acidity. We also found the mouthfeel to be rounded. The flavor profile is stony mineral and pecan blend notes of lemon, pastries, and green apple. We also detected hints of ginger and spice. The finish is dry, refreshing and its flavors fade away nicely. The Panel would pair this Sparkler with sweet potato soup with ginger and lime or broiled scallops. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Planted in 1974 and at 900 feet elevation is where you'll find this unique parcel of Pinot Noir for our Knudsen Vineyard Brut. Some of the few remaining vines in the Dundee Hills from that early pioneering era, this own-rooted Pommard at high elevation expresses incredible density and elegance. Fermenting and aging in neutral wood barrel helps build layers of creamy complexity, displaying cherry kernel, rose petal, and roast cashew gliding into a long, silky finish.
