Delightfully smooth with lemon, rich pear, almond and hazelnut, and just a hint of buttery croissant. Excellent balance of fruit and richness. Thoroughly enjoyed the medium finish as the richer nutty flavors come through. Paired with grilled chicken and Asian vinaigrette salad which shows sparkling wine goes with just about anything. ($24)

Best quality-price ratio in California sparkling. Balanced fruit and nuttiness with great presence and length.

Good for the price/mostly balanced but a little too much sweetness for me. Maybe I'm really more of a zero dosage kind of gal?

Macerated golden apples, apple sauce, apple cider, overripe pineapple, toasted candied nuts. Lots of these kinds of apple flavors equals an oxidative style and this one is over the top for me.

Brilliant quality:price ratio, as always. Bit more fruit-driven than usual but still with solid minerality. Wish I knew the base vintage(s)!
