J. Schram Rosé, North Coast – 2004 – 96 points –
96 points

“Schramsberg, a pioneer and long time leader in California sparkling wine, demonstrated in a blind tasting last year in New York that their Rosé sparkling wine stands with the best from around the world.  At that tasting, their 2000 Rosé was preferred over France’s prestige Rosé Champagnes, Roederer’s Cristal, Krug, Dom Perignon, Perrier Jouët and Veuve Clicquot’s Grande Dame, by a group of experienced journalists.  Schramsberg’s 2004 is a worthy successor to that wine. Schramsberg selects only the very best batches for this wine, which they do not produce every year. A seamless blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, part of which is fermented in stainless steel tanks and part in French oak barrels, their 2004 J Schram Brut Rosé delivers exotic spice that complement subtle red fruit flavors. Seven years of aging on the lees helps explain why it’s so suave and polished.”
