J Vineyards Russian River Valley Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

SKU #1031177 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

 Finding a place at the lighter end of the Rosé spectrum and, in fact, a wine that could easily pass for a Blanc de Noirs, this lightly yeasty version fixes on energetic, slightly juicy, young fruit as its main motif. It is briskly balanced, but its ample acidity enlivens without ever once seeming sharp, and it is wholly free of the astringency that marks its more vinous mates. *Two Stars*  (11/2015)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Thick and rich in feel but with fresh acidity, this wine tastes of lemon, strawberry and a touch of grapefruit. It is layered and complex while offering approachable rewards, made from a majority of Pinot Noir with smaller amounts of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. (VB)  (11/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Very pale salmon-pink colored, the NV Brut Rose is scented of raspberry leaves, red currants and Bing cherries with a waft of baking bread. The palate is very fine and elegant with a great intensity of red berry flavors, finishing on a spiced apples note. (LPB)  (3/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Creamy and easygoing, with appealing strawberry and watermelon flavors that end on a crisp, spicy note. Drink now. (TF, Web Only-2018)

I love this Brut Rose and it is finally not being overlooked by the Cuvee 20. Bright cherry fruit and hazelnuts with cream. Strawberry and raspberries in the mouth with a nice, long dry finish. Yummy!

Other White Wines

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Alexander Valley/Russian River

- Among Sonoma County's northernmost appellations, the Alexander Valley AVA acts as a gateway to neighboring Napa to the east and Mendocino to the north. It is a sprawling appellation, with pockets of distinct microclimates and soils, and as such, is home to a variety of wine grapes and styles. Nearly everything grows in the Alexander Valley, though Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the most widely planted grapes. The Russian River Valley lies to the south of Alexander Valley, and is marked by much cooler temperatures and frequently heavy fog. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown here are some of the state's finest and most sought-after. Aromatic whites like Gewürztraminer and Riesling can also be successful, and sparkling wine production has a long history in the area.
