Founded by the Champagne house, Taittinger, Domaine Carneros is one of the few sparkling houses in California that produced from one appellation. All sourced from the Carneros AVA and predominately from their Estate vineyards, the Brut Rosé is the best of all teh CA Rosé:s at this price point. This '07 is a blend of Pinot noir and Chardonnay and offers bubbles, a little strawberry fruit nuance and a lot of refreshment. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
