Winemaker Notes

#65 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2013

The 2005 Reserve has aromas of wild raspberry, Bing cherry and caramelized orange that evolve with toasted hazelnut and creme brulee. The palate is layered with flavors of raspberry, guava, pineapple, cocoa and sweet spice. Crisp on entry, with a slight minerality, the texture is smooth and velvety. The wine has a balanced acidity and long finish that lingers on the palate.

Varietals: 74% Pinot Noir, 26% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Very fine and complex, this is a great sparkling wine, but one that needs lots of time in the bottle. A classic brut blended with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it's rich with flavors of strawberries, limes, vanilla and honey, with lots of smokey toast and yeastiness. Above all, the mousse is exceptionally refined and pure.

Cellar Selection

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The rich, nearly tannic, frothy 2005 Reserve (74% Pinot Noir and 26% Chardonnay) offers notes of apple pie, honeysuckle and earth. Made in a bigger, firmer, more structured style compared to the J. Schram, it is pure with persistent bubbles, and should drink nicely for 5-8 years.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Once again, Schramsberg has pushed sparkling wine to levels of depth and complexity that are rarely seen in these parts. The heavier reliance on Pinot Noir here as opposed to its Rosé mate above gives this wine more fullness and heft and also accentuates its complex approach to personality development. If, in the process, it has given away a tad more on the delicacy side, it gives away very little anywhere else and is quite highly recommended.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A rich yet refined and focused style, with bold cinnamon, apple, raspberry and hazelnut aromas that open to opulent tropical fruit and spicy candied ginger flavors, finishing with crisp acidity

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.

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.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
