This sparkling rose from Carneros is a good mix of sweet and savory: A mildly yeasty nose with touches of floral character is followed by a mildly sweet, berry-forward body. Quite a lot of fizz to it, the body is more foamy than creamy. The finish is easy and lasting, fading toward a little bitter at the very end. Excellent fit for an Aperol Spritz.
