Review: NV Korbel Prosecco DOC

Korbel is best known for its affordable California sparkling wine, but now it’s spreading its wings — to the east. Per the company, “Korbel tasted its way through Italy’s Prosecco DOC region and brought home an Italian sparkler of its own.”

That’s right, Korbel Prosecco, from Italy!

To be honest, aside from the label, there’s not too much to get excited about here. The wine is an exceedingly straightforward expression of Prosecco, heavy on apples, touched with notes of baking spice and lemon curd. Slightly sweet, the wine finishes clean and very lightly touched with bready/yeasty notes — and certainly worth every penny of its 14 dollar asking price.

    I just had a bad experience with Korbel Prosecco. This surprised me as I have enjoyed several bottles with my wife over the last year – perhaps 6 in total. I bought 2 bottles at Safeway about 2 weeks ago. Both were undrinkable and were dumped down the drain. The 2nd bottle was highly unpleasant and the first seemed off to the point of hazardous. If it helps the neck label code of the first was GHRLOHNHL932 while the less bad one was TWVF3H2N9M22.
    Is there a protocol for reporting bad bottles? Should I hold on to my receipts when I buy a bottle until I determine it is ok? Should I then return it to my place of purchase?
    Thank you.
