    Dibon is new to us, and after tasting this complex, well-made Cava we are happy to make its acquaintance. The nose offers regal yeast and richness, while the palate has complexity to prop up apple, citrus and grapefruit flavors. Solid from front to back, with health and freshness.
    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Apr 2012
    The non-vintage Cava Dibon Brut Reserve (lot 111409) is based on the classic Cava grape varieties with a secondary fermentation after 16 months in bottle. It has a simple bouquet that has pleasant, light floral aromas. The palate has a crisp citric entry with touches of Clementine and grapefruit with fine delineation towards the fresh, apple-y finish. Drink now.

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#34579

    WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - May 1, 1999
    Pale green straw. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Mildly floral aromas. Juicy, appealing, simple flavors have an apple-like/lemon cream note. The mouthfeel shows a degree of creamy richness.
    WE8686 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2002
    This mass-market Cava is smooth and tight, with no one thing really standing out. The palate is light and crisp, with melon and green apple. The finish is seriously dry, but some sweetness does rise up. Defined and solid; a mainstream Cava for certain.
    RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st May 2011
    The lineup begins with the Non-Vintage Cordon Negro made from the three traditional grape varieties of the Cava DO (Xarel-lo, Macabeu, and Parellada) with the emphasis on the latter for this bottling. It is made in a tasty, friendly style with a dosage of 9 grams making it just off-dry on the palate. It is a cleanly made sparkling wine that can be found in discount stores at well under the suggested retail price.
    SP8585 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 1998
    The vanilla, cream and apple flavors show intensity in this richly textured sparkler. It has more depth than many cavas, yet remains fresh and fruity, with a slightly sweet finish. Drink now.

    Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#66498

    ST8787 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Sep/Oct 2004
    Subtle, leesy aromas of apple, spices, flowers and nuts. Dry, racy and perfumed, with intense ginger and apple flavors complicated by nutty and floral nuances. Finishes quite dry and restrained. Unusually subtle, fresh, clean Cava.
    WS8585 pts. - Wine & Spirits - November 1, 1997
    A full-flavored, assertive Spanish sparkler that starts with toasty, spicy aromas, then wraps its nutty, fruity flavors in a rich texture. Lingers nicely on the finish, too. Lots of character for this price range.
    WE8585 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/15/1998
    A crisp, very simple nonvintage cava from the Penedès region southwest of Barcelona. Perfect for basic sipping or as a blend in a mimosa or another champagne cocktail. By itself you will appreciate the mild bubble bead — courtesy of 18 to 24 months of bottle aging — and the mellow green-apple flavor. For eight dollars, you can’t complain.
    SP8585 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2004
    Tastes like new oak, wth vanilla and honey framing peach and citrus flavors. It’s all nicely balanced and lingering on the finish. Drink now.

    Segura Viudas Brut Reserva

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#11732

    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 1994
    The Brut Reserva is lighter in style, and less complex than the Aria Estate Brut, though it is still a beautifully balanced, clean sparkler that will serve well at any festivities. Light and crisp, with a full nutty flavor. Well-blended.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/1998
    Pale straw. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Toasty aromas lead a creamy palate with citrus flavors and a full mouthfeel.
    SP8686 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 1996
    Tastes flavorful and complex, is rich in texture and long on the finish. Has powerful fruit and good balance.
    BD8585 pts. - Beverage Dynamics - Mar/Apr 2005
    Softened yellow tones filled with persistent streams of fine bubbles; scents of sweet bananas, vanilla, and toasted plantains followed by similar flavors with citrus notes beaming through the center of this straightforward refreshing sparkler.
    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st May 2011
    Segura Viudas’ entry level Cava, the Non-Vintage Brut Reserva offers up a pleasant perfume of yeast notes, biscuit, and green apple. It is a straightforward, lively, slightly off-dry bubbly that is a good value for drinking over the next 12–18 months.
