Wine Review: This copperish pink colored Sparkling Wine from Domaine Carneros opens with lots of streaming bubbles. The bouquet features bread dough and strawberry aromas along with hints of almond, tangerine and a touch of raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied with pleasant crisp acidity that nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry and bread dough with notes of lemon, green apple and walnut. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity fade away nicely. This sparkler is very food friendly and would pair well with fresh salmon carpaccio or prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe. Enjoy – Ken & Joe

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. Exceedingly food-friendly, pairs well with salmon, and fresh berries.
