Wine Review: This light coral colored Sparkling Wine opens with lots of random small and medium bubbles. It opens with a moist bread dough and strawberry bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and lively. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced lemon with notes of grapefruit and strawberry. We also detected a hint of green apple. The finish is dry and very refreshing. We would pair this very good sparkler with bacon wrapped scallops or broiled sea scallops. This did not last very long and was liked by all that tried it. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine's aroma, delivered on a delicate mousse, hints at wild strawberry, raspberry, peach, apricot, honeysuckle and exotic spices. Despite what its color may suggest, it is a true Brut – completely dry. And while Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is enjoyable at a young age, it will also gain wonderful complexity with aging.
