Winemaker's Notes:

As Schramsberg Brut Rosé fans know, we strive to create a delicate style with emphasis on finesse and grace. The 1997 vintage was a special one for us because we were able to make a delicate wine while still showcasing the rich, ripe flavors of the vintage. This cuvée exhibits lush Pinot Noir aromas of black cherry, spice, and berry, as well as a light toasty note. The flavors are fresh and full, showing the vibrant, lively character I expect from a Rosé. The length, balance and finish of this wine are exceptional. The 1997 Rosé will be delicious today, or after a decade of cellaring. Enjoy! -Mike Reynolds, Winemaker
My Notes:

About Schramsberg Vineyards:

Focused on Schramsberg's top Chardonnay barrel and tank lots, and aged for seven years prior to release, J. Schram is the winery's signature Brut sparkling wine. Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965, with a mission to produce California's first world-class sparkling wines. Today, led by their son Hugh, Schramsberg's team continues with this commitment to quality and innovation. Schramsberg also produces the J. Schram Rose, Reserve, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Brut Rose, Cremant Demi-Sec and J. Davies Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
