Review: 2013 Balletto Brut Rose Russian River Valley

One sip of Balletto’s Brut Rose sparkler and I’m immediately transported ahead a month or so to the holidays. This is a classically structured rose (made from an interesting blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay), lightly floral and scented with strawberries, moderately effervescent, with overtones of orange peel, ginger, and a sprinkle of herbs. Refreshing and worthwhile, a big step up from your garden-variety Prosecco or cava.
