Mumm Napa Brut Rosé

This outstanding wine's strawberry-like flavors are delicious with a wonderful creamy finish.



On Valentine’s Day, flowers are a good start — but a sparkling wine can make for a perfect ending. Whether you spend the evening at the Pittsburgh Symphony, check out a movie or enjoy a quiet candlelight dinner at home, including a bottle of sparkling wine can add to the romance.

Remember that a sparkling wine is not just a wine to celebrate with, but also a great food wine to complement many different dishes. Mumm Napa is located on the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley, Calif., and is one of my favorite wineries to visit in Napa Valley. It produces a wide range of outstanding sparkling wines — from the classic brut to the luxury DVX Cuvee.

I have selected the brut rosé ($21.99; PLCB code: 4652) for your enjoyment. The wine, which I ranked at 90 points, is a beauty, with its light pink color and aromas of strawberry and bread yeast. The strawberry-like flavors are delicious with a wonderful creamy finish. Cheers!

Score: 90
