Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines60% Pinot Noir; 30% Pinot Muenier; 10% Chardonnay. On the lean, slightly tangy and comparatively austere end of the Rose spectrum and showing angles and edges aplenty, this close-to-wiry wine wants for added richness and range, but even though lemony tartness is its salient theme, it still hits the chalky, mildly minerally marks of real Champagne.
Wine & SpiritsThe color alone sets this wine apart from its peers; itrsquo;s what can only be called Barbie doll pink. Fresh and foamy, it spurts out of the bottle as if to say ldquo;Par-tay!rdquo; Fruity and flavorful, it carries hints of rose petals, citrus zest and cherry Lifesavers.
