Winemaker's Notes
"Bright Stella cherry red, with a bouquet of ripe alpine strawberry on brioche. On the palate, intense, lush pure pinot noir, dry, vibrant and lingering."

Technical Notes
"100% Pinot Noir. Bottle fermented and aged on lees for a minimum of 24 months. 12.5% alc."
Wine Spectator
"91 pts ... The dried raspberry, lemon curd and Asian pear flavors are crisp and detailed, with notes of white flowers, five-spice powder and toast leading to a long, lingering, juicy finish. Offers an appealing mix of power and finesse."

NV Graham Beck Brut Rose
Somehow even more festive than Graham Beck's Brut, perhaps it is the lovely orangey-pink color, this small bubbled bubbly - say that really fast ten times - is crisp, dry, and very refreshing. It has delicate red fruit flavors and a wonderful yeasty component.

2011 Taltarni Brut Tache
94 JH You need this sparkler! For one third of the price of certain name-withheld French champagnes, you will be exceedingly pleased. Dry, with a blood orange mid-palate, creamy, good length and crisp finish. It was lovely with spaghetti bolognese and does even better with the usual suspects like smoked trout, lox, your favorite fish, berries, a warm fire and good company!
