1998 Schramsberg "J. Schram" Sparkling Wine

SKU #1179792 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ultra-refined, super-elegant, the superlatives go on and on. Pours clear and bright, with the most subtle and inviting aromas, all dough and smoke and custardy vanilla with that tease of strawberry. So silky and light on the palate, airy, like silk, and perfectly dosed to a smooth dryness. You will find youthful acidity and scour on the finish, suggesting a wine fully capable of aging. Inner quote mark (12/2004)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Spice, ginger, fresh pear and floral notes lead to a rich, complex array of flavors in this bubbly, with yeast and dough notes. Turns smooth and shows extra layers of concentation, with a long, lingering finish. Inner quote mark (11/2004)

K&L Notes

For Schramsberg's top cuvee of sparkling wine, grapes are sourced from a selection of cool coastal locations--the 1998 even contains 12% fruit from Marin County. Aged and hand-riddled in the winery's historic, hand-dug caves in Calistoga, J. Schram is 12.7% ABV and has 1.21% sugar in the dosage.
