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.
