Opens w/ a bread dough & strawberry aroma followed w/ very tasty red fruits. Very good, and in same class as the Roederer.

Blackberry & black cherry flavors w/apparent tannins & moderate acidity that easily handles grilled steaks. Reminiscent of a good, left-bank Bordeaux. G++. S16.5

I find Roederer's Estate Brute to be the perfect intersection of taste and value in a sparkling wine. It is crisp with citrus, apple and berry aromas and flavors with a fine body. Though not as nutty and yeasty as many Champagnes it has a hint of those elements. It is marvelous alone or with appropriate foods. You definitely need to keep this around.

Our stand-by house sparkling. Crisp texture w/ light citrus flavor (less than Ch. St. Michelle). No aftertaste or unpleasant aromas.

Off-dry to dry, noticeably acidic over white grape flavor with a trace of minerality. OK but no favorable comments from red or whate wine drinkers. Stick with a good Pinot Grigio or Riesling.

The winemaker's notes on this one are accurate. Everything you want in a moderately priced Napa Cabernet and more flavor and finess than is present in the RM Napa Valley Cabernet. NOTE, I bought several of these in 12/08 when wine.com was selling it for $27 - a steal at that price.

Full bodied but soft. Seamless grape & red fruit aroma & red cherry dominated taste. Surprisingly, given the weight, the wine doesn't complement steak as well as pasta & chicken. Serve as one would a good Rhone wine. 10/06 - has soften enormously - wonderful, seamless fruit, tannins & oak. It is now a marvelous complement to steak! WM913.

Deep red color w/ a rasberry jam aroma. The flavors are, mainly, rich black cherry coolaide over fresh plum. A quite pleasant, though soft, drinker for those that do not prefer Napa Caps but has a bit more structure and acidity than ~ $15 Central Coast Cabs. C10.88.

Dry red cherry aroma w/ med. color & body. Nice sour red cherry/grape & a little bit of dust flavor. The wine has good acidity & an alcoholic hit. Nice. WB17
