Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Dec 2015

"One of my favorite cuvées, and it’s their largest and most successful commercial cuvée, is their 2012 Blanc de Blancs. This is 100% Chardonnay, dry with about 15% barrel-fermented. This is a killer effort and it’s my go-to sparkling wine when I’m at restaurants since it’s always available at a fair price. The 2012 shows loads of orange blossom notes, crisp green apple notes, a touch of caramelized grapefruit in a gorgeously fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated and delicious sparkling wine with tiny, pinpoint bubbles and a long, zesty finish. The Davies family thinks this can last 20 years, but for most readers, they might prefer to drink it upon release and over the following 4–5 years. This was first made when the winery debuted its early sparkling wines in 1965." (92 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
