Wine Review: This pale yellow colored sparkler with a faint orange hue explodes on the scene with medium to fine bubbles. It opens with a bread dough and light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a very tasty mineral infused bread dough with notes of lemon and Granny Smith apple and hints of almond. The finish is dry and its flavors and minerality linger and last for quite some time. This Sparkler will be perfect for your New Year’s eve celebration. It was one of my favorites of the season. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Blanc de Noirs expresses generous aromas of yellow peach, fresh orange zest, cantaloupe, and citrus blossom, which gradually layers with fragrances of warm apple dumpling and creme anglaise. Lush flavors coat the palate with tangerine, Santa Rosa plum, candied ginger and a hint of French flan. This sparkling wine delivers a clean, lingering finish with crisp mouthwatering.
