Wine Review: This coral colored Brut Rose from J Vineyards displays lots of tiny bubbles. I t opens with a pleasant mild strawberry and light bread dough bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused strawberry with notes of nutmeg, yeast and sour dough bread. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a very versatile sparkler that will pair nicely with many foods. I would pair it with stuffed mushrooms. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our J Brut Rose sparkling wine has a vibrant, pink salmon hue and offers layered aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apples, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an elegant mouthfeel complements flavors of ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds. Lively acidity and steely minerality frame a lingering, lush finish for this Brut Rose. We recommend pairing this elegant sparkling rose with roasted beet and goat cheese salad, a simple plate of smoked salmon canapés, or blue cheese.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
