2007 Schramsberg "J. Schram" North Coast Sparkling Wine

SKU #1254354 96 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This extraordinarily deep, explicitly champenized offering is a study in contrasts when it is compared to Schramberg's 2007 Reserve, for, while both are nearing their tenth anniversaries, this one shows its autolysis in a more refined light and wears its age with more elegance. It is rife with crème brûlée richness but has retained a subtle, but very sure sense of slightly juicy fruit that has not faded with time. It is a complete and compelling package that reveals more and more with each sip, and it ranks among the very best sparkling wines to be made anywhere. Inner quote mark (3/2016)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* This gorgeous, full-bodied and compelling wine is made from 84% Chardonnay and 16% Pinot Noir. It has a rich golden color, slightly earthy aromas, plus bread dough and white-peach scents that lead to very opulent, sophisticated and nicely aged flavors that range from toasted walnut to honeyed peach to white pepper. While it's already nine years old, this will easily age through 2022. (JG) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Still another stunner is the 2007 J. Schram, which is roughly 84% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir with about 35% barrel-fermentation and the balance in stainless steel. This shows loads of honeyed tropical fruit such as pineapple and mango, a touch of white peach, beautiful body, wonderful pinpoint bubbles that are persistent, and a dry, crisp, long finish. This was disgorged in March 2015, so it spent nearly eight years on its lees. Drink it over the next 5-10 years, if not longer. A tasting some of the older vintages, such as the 2004, 2001, 1999, 1996, proved just how amazingly well these can age. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek and refined, offering vivid aromas of fresh almond, cinnamon and ginger, with layered flavors of Meyer lemon, mineral and sweet anise. Drink now. (TF) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An attractively complex nose blends together notes of citrus, brioche, white flowers and a hint of baked cookies. There is plenty of citrus character to the crisp and intense flavors where the supporting mousse is relatively fine on the finish that isn't nearly as dry as the reported RS would suggest. I found this to be delicious but lacking the necessary depth to be at the next level. Note that this will continue to age and optimists could do so in the hopes that additional depth will develop.
