*One Star* Where once the Mirabelle bottlings were priced with the big winery entry level efforts, now it has grown up and sits just above that tier. And, here, in the pink version, it succeeds as a distinctly fruity and friendly offering with all the juicy exuberance that California grapes can bring to the party. Its aromas are pleasantly outgoing and its open, well-balanced flavors make it a wine to remember when choosing a bottle of bubbles for all sorts of happy occasions from tailgating to birthday celebrations.
...Even better is the outstanding NV Mirabelle Brut Rosé, 64% Pinot Noir and 36% Chardonnay. This shows a light pink color, beautiful delicate notes of strawberries and currants, crisp acids, a fresh, lively zesty style and medium body. Both of these are meant to be drunk upon release and are probably at their best within the first year or two of aging. Schramsberg, founded in 1862 by German immigrant Jacob Schram, fell victim to hard times in 1912 but was resurrected by the Davies Family in 1965. The quality seems to be going from strength to strength and these were the best sparkling wines I've tasted from them. Current owners Hugh and Monique Davies look over 43 acres on Diamond Mountain, and utilize fruit sourced from cool-climate areas ranging from Carneros, farther south in Marin County, to the north in Anderson Valley.

This is a traditional-style wine with a light salmon color, lively cherry and lychee aromas and crisp, white-peach and apricot flavors. It wraps a lot of flavor in an elegant package and is substantive enough to drink through a meal. (JG)
Aromas of strawberry and gingerbread combine with appealing if modestly complex flavors of cinnamon, spice and red apple. Drink now. (TF)
