Scharffenberger Mendocino County Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine
*Editors' Choice* This is a classy bottle of bubbly from the light copper color to the lightly fruity, yeasty aromas to the crisp mouthfeel and satisfying spice and raspberry flavors. A sense of layered richness is balanced by good acidity for balance. (JG)

Light peach skin color, with a slow bead. Musky orange peel and herb aromas, with a hint of white chocolate. Fleshy, weighty and smooth in texture, offering ripe citrus and pit fruit flavors and a touch of green cardamom. Slightly loose-knit but packs a punch, finishing with an echo of candied orange and lingering sweetness. (JR)
Wine & Spirits
Soft with the gentle flavors of Pinot grapes, this is a simple rosé to serve with cracked crab.
Fresh and festive, with floral strawberry and spicy vanilla aromas and supple flavors of raspberry, peach and gingerbread. (TF, Web-2016)
