A delicious little sparkler, with berries on the nose, a bit of yeasty/lees and a nice dry finish. Great acidity from the Pinot Noir adds a lift and makes this a great wine to sip alone or accompany food.
Rich & Creamy
Rich and delicious with vanilla, pear, oak and some butter-cream from the malolactic fermentation. Great aromatics.
Big & Bold
Every year I buy a case of Phantom. The 2005 is drinking fabulous right now - still 3D - Dark Delicious and Dangerous! Spice, plum, black fruit and a bit of chocolate. HUGELY aromatic and very crowd-pleasing. Great blend, I serve it when I have guests of differing palates and everyone loves it.
Fruity & Smooth
Loved this wine! Well balanced with good acidity and creamy fruit. The absence of American oak was refreshing and keeps the wine light and perfect with a meal. My new favorite Chardonnay!
Smooth & Supple
This wine is soft and supple- which is a shame, since it once was BIG & BOLD. I bought my bottles at the winery and at that time it was TRIPLE D - dark, delicious and dangerous. Opened it last night and was surprised the wine had softened. It was full fruit last night, but today feels tired and old. It's a fading one-night wonder. Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
