Jim and Carrie's Absolute Favorite Winery in Napa!
91 Points Connoisseurs Guide
"A quiet complement of green apple fruit sits beneath similarly constrained elements of toast and minerals in the fresh, nicely composed aromas of this comparatively refined sparkler, and, as is the Schramsberg norm, the wine is charged with plentiful, fairly tiny bubbles that last and last.The clean and crisp, slightly austere qualities of the genre come through at every stop here with nary a hint of sweetness surfacing along the way. Over the years, this producer has shown an especially adept hand with Blanc de Blancs, and nothing has changed with this latest rendition."

"A crisp texture and rather full body carry subtle spice and lean dry fruit flavors in this nicely reserved and complex wine. Apple skin, lemon zest and hints of toasted almond carry the palate and linger on the finish

"Crisp and luscious, with expressive cherry, Meyer lemon and yeast roll accents that linger on a refreshing finish"
Blanc de Noirs (white from black) is the counterpart to Blanc de Blancs (white from white). Made primarily from the red grape Pinot Noir, this is a complex, medium-bodied, brut sparkling wine. Schramsberg pioneered the Blanc de Noirs style in the United States, releasing the first such American sparkler in 1967. The key to producing this complex Blanc de Noirs is our vast and varied focus on diverse cool-climate vineyards. Pinot Noir from Carneros and Anderson Valley combine with fruit from low-yielding Sonoma and Marin coastal vineyards to develop a sparkling wine with a breadth of fruitful aroma and flavor. Select Chardonnay lots give zest and backbone to the blend.
Viognier and Marsanne Blend
An incredibly fragrant nose full of sweet apricot and gingery spice. The palate is luscious and generous, but has great acid which tightens the wine, adding freshness and a clean crisp finish. Slight pithy feel which builds on the spice notes. Lovely as a fresh stand alone drink that still exhibits some mouthfeel, or equally well adapted to enjoying with a range of foods from freshly shucked oysters through to spicy Thai style dishes.
$32.00Light yellow. Pungent, mineral-accented aromas of lemon pith and green apple, with subtle herbal and floral qualities adding complexity. Fleshy and smooth on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering refreshingly bitter lemon zest and quince flavors and a touch of anise. Closes on a minerally note, with very good clarity and length
Garganega 50%, Chardonnay 35%, Incrocio Manzoni 15% (for aromatics)
Pesce, pronounce “Pesh-ay,” means fish in Italian and this refers to the fact that this wine goes perfectly with all manner of seafood. A classic Veronese table wine, this is a common blend of the grapes grown around the city of Verona. A lush and expressive wine with notes of apple, pear, and lemon. A dry wine with med/full body and a balanced finish that is both refreshing and firm.
98% Vernaccia di San Gimignano, 2% Trebbiano Toscana and Malvasia Bianca Lunga del Chianti
Complex nose featuring floral, citrus, tropical and mineral notes. A wine with a great structure that is fresh and persistent.
