Somewhat floral aroma with toasted yeast, pears, and honey. Medium toasty body, opening and showing more fruit in the glass. Crisp, citric finish. A California sparkler that has taken on the depth and rounded flavors characteristic of vintage champagne, so sip it slowly. From the Ferrer family, one of the top cava producers in Spain with a couple decades of Carneros production under their belts, this wine is an amazing value. Grab it whenever you can find it.
