Review: 2017 Benovia Blanc de Blancs Russian River Valley

Just because it’s January doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate. Benovia’s 2017 sparkler is 100% chardonnay, a bright and lively wine that offers a substantial, fizz-focused base against which notes of honeydew melon, tangerine peel, almond, and some coconut all emerge at various points in time. The finish — again, heavy with carbonation, almost racily so — is enduring with moderated sweetness, hinting at lemongrass and nougat.
