"NV Mirabelle Brut Rosé, 64% Pinot Noir and 36% Chardonnay.
This shows a light pink color, beautiful delicate notes of strawberries and currants, crisp acids, a fresh, lively zesty style and medium body."

90 Points! The Wine Enthusiast

"This bubbly from Schramsberg has a deepish, salmon color and peach, melon and ginger cookie aromas.
It combines crispness and finesse, fruit with complexity.
Hints of almond, walnut and subtle spices come out on the lingering finish."

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

This Brut Rosé has generous aromas of strawberry and orange zest.
Its fruitful nose is complemented by notes of cinnamon, vanilla and watermelon.
On the palate, there are juicy flavors of ruby grapefruit, stone fruit and raspberry compote, with soft touches of toasted hazelnut and shortbread cookie. The finish is fresh with bright clean acidity.

A bit about Schramsberg’s history.....

In 1826, in the small town of Pfeddersheim Germany, along the Rhine River, Jacob Schram was born. He came from a winemaking family. When he was sixteen, the young Schram immigrated to New York. He was educated in the trade of barbering, and in 1852 sailed across the Caribbean, crossed-over the Panama Isthmus, and continued up to San Francisco. He spent the next several years barbering, eventually moving his way north, to the Napa Valley.

In 1859 he married Annie Christine Weaver, also from Germany, and they started a family. For several years he continued to barber full time. Never far from his thoughts were his homeland and his roots in the vinelands of Germany. In 1862, Jacob purchased a large piece of land on the mountainsides of the Napa Valley. He was going to be a part of the emerging efforts by many fellow German countrymen in the Napa Valley to make wine; thus Schramsberg was born.

The Schramsberg estate is tucked into the densely forested slopes of Diamond Mountain, a few miles south of the town of Calistoga, and is home to the oldest hillside vineyards in Napa. It totals 218 acres with 43 acres planted to vines.

The estate, a registered historic landmark, has been painstakingly restored by the Davies family. The Victorian house, the lower winery, the barn and the caves remain largely unchanged since Jacob Schram’s days.
