What a roll Mumm Napa is on with their new releases. This blush wine shows the level of richness and elegance the winery has achieved lately. Made from 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay, it has deliciously forward flavors of raspberries, strawberries, gingersnap cookies and vanilla lemon custard, with the bubbly froth and tart yeastiness of a fine sparkling wine.
More pink than salmon in the glass, the nose is dominated by fresh red berry fruit, with a hint of cherry; the acidity keeps the wine lively on the palate, and the finish is long and balanced; a great example of a rosé, the wine has plenty of weight to pair with a wide range of foods.

A hearty 80% Pinot Noir dominates in this sparkler, rounded out with 20% Chardonnay. With a pink-salmon hue, it offers peach and wild strawberry aromas followed by similar, medium-bodied flavors, with the addition of succulent plum.

Luscious and festive, this rosé has a light pink color, with floral strawberry and cream aromas followed by succulent raspberry, graham cracker and mineral flavors that have a crisp finish. Drink now through 2015.

What an easy-to-drink, delicious bubbly this is. With a golden salmon color, it’s rich in flavors of strawberry, raspberry, lime, vanilla and yeast. It finishes with a subtle sweetness. Pair it with sushi, sashimi or ham-based dishes.

Aromas of rose petal and strawberry lead to crisp, pretty flavors of raspberry, pear and creamy vanilla. A fun quaff. Drink now.

A bit rough and scoury, but so delicious in flavor, you forgive it. Attracts for its raspberries, rose petals, brioche and vanilla, and the racy acidity cleanses the mouth.
