Winemaker Notes

Aromas of dense black cherry blended with white pepper, blueberry, and vanilla gently arise from the glass. The vibrant palate coats with boysenberry; intermingles with Santa Rosa plum and mocha; and is sustained by a dense finish.

Wine Enthusiast
This seductive wine has a deep ruby color, jazzy cherry and plum aromas and an elegantly balanced mouthfeel. It offers plenty of fruit flavors that are fresh and just a touch tart like they should be, firm tannins and full body. Best after 2018.

In 1965, Jamie and Jack Davies acquired the historic Schramsberg estate and began producing, as Jack said, "America's most prestigious, select, admired champagne - chosen for special guests, special gifts, pampering one's self and expressing one's taste in unique products."

Among their accomplishments: The first production use of Chardonnay in American champagnes, as well as the first American Blanc de Noirs using Pinot Noir in the classic way. Then a Reserve, with over four years of aging. This was followed by Crémant Demi-Sec using the Flora grape (a hybrid of Semillon and Gewurztraminer), and introductions of late-disgorged cuvées. Jamie and Jack even revived tunnel construction in America for wine aging. Their philosophy for winemaking is to draw on the best of the past, building on the foundation of experience to improve the quality of their wines.

Red Wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
