J Vineyards & Winery Brut Rosé NV
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||J Vineyards & Winery|
Earthy and effusive in lemon and wild strawberry, this well-made vintage sparkler blends 56% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 7% Pinot Meunier. Focused acidity brightens the palate around flavors of oyster shell and sea spray.
Blended of about two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay with a splash of Pinot Meurnier, the NV Brut Rose sports a very pale salmon-pink color, delivering notes of wild strawberries, McIntosh apples and raspberry leaves with a hint of chalk dust. The palate offers seriously zippy red berries and apple flavors with an impressively fine mousse and well-balanced finish. 15,000 were cases made.
