The wine offers abundant aromas of ripe apple, Asian pear and Bing cherries amid enticing yeasty tones. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe peach, Meyer lemon, fresh berries and vanilla join with creamy textures in a lasting finish.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Zesty and succulent, with racy notes of spice, Meyer lemon and pear. A fun quaff. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.-TF

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Mostly Pinot Noir, with a few drops of Chardonnay and Muscat, this slightly sweet bubbly is a little scoury, with hard-edged bubbles. It has orange, lime and strawberry flavors, with the toasty yeastiness of Champagne. (Nov 2013)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Tight and persistent bubbles create a tornado in the glass. Yeasty notes of bread dough and chalk highlight the aromatics. Dry, steely and long in the mouth. Refreshing, focused and charming. (May /201)
