Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé — California

This wine is made from a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes, giving it a pink-salmon color.



With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, here's a gift suggestion for the romantics at heart: Along with a dozen red roses, consider picking up a bottle of sparkling wine. Specifically the Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé — California.

Schramsberg is known as California’s distinguished sparkling-wine producer, and the company’s non-vintage sparkling varieties provide exceptional quality at a good value. Schramsberg’s small-production J. Schram and reserve sparkling wines can compete with the best French Champagnes in their price range.

The Mirabelle Brut Rosé [$23.89; PLCB SLO code: 53957], scored at 91 points, is a special liquor-order wine; buyers must purchase a minimum of six bottles. The wine is made from a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes, giving it a pink-salmon color. It exhibits cherry and strawberry aromas and has delicate fruit flavors balanced with a creamy yeastiness in the finish. If you’d like an alternative wine, think about trying the 92-point-rated 2010 Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs [$37.99; PLCB code: 31665].
