Crisp and full-bodied, this stunning sparkler offers notes of bread dough, vanilla,apple, peach, quince and pecan.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 1996 Vintage) Rich, polished and layered, this gorgeously crafted wine delivers a most enjoyable and sophisticated nose of roasted lemons, water crackers, hints of honey and austere but always supportive citrusy fruit. Its foamy, creamy mousse hits just the right note for the deep, complex and wonderfully refined flavors, and its long, engaging finish adds even more to like.
