Schramsberg Brut Rosé 2019
|California, North Coast
The Tasting Panel
A pretty, pure nose of raspberry and baguette plus hints of orange marmalade and rhubarb cake set the tone for the exceedingly elegant palate on this blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay itself marked by resonant acidity, a lightly creamy mouthfeel, and flavors of yellow cherry and just-ripened peach that taper toward a lengthy finish of dried chamomile and mint.
A well-rounded, easily enjoyable sparkling rosé, this offers a persistent fine-bubbled mousse structure, resulting in an overall smooth drinking experience. You will find nuanced aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, grapefruit, watermelon, white strawberries, dewy morning grass, and a wet stone minerality, with just a hint of those autolytic toasty notes. The finish lingers with additional florals of pink roses and fresh daisies.
Offers pretty peach and strawberry flavors and a luscious, lingering texture as this takes on spice and orange peel accents on the crisp yet plush finish. Drink now.
More savory than sweet and wonderfully complex, the 2019 Brut Rosé North Coast bursts from the glass with toasty notes of fresh baguette and almonds, giving way to crushed apples and gingery spice. This rushes the palate with an elegant bead of silken bubbles. It is creamy yet energetic, and mineral-tinged orchard fruits add further tension. The 2019 leaves the senses wonderfully refreshed through the long, crunchy finale, as white strawberry and spice cookie notes fade. The Brut Rosé is a pleasure bomb, yet it’s wonderfully balanced throughout.
