Last night we opened the Schug 2010 Rouge de Noirs. We tried it and purchased a bottle in December 2013 when we were in Sonoma after Jon ran his first marathon.
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir, and produced using the Saignée method. Due to a 3 day cold soak of the juice and the skins, it is much darker than the typical Brut Rosé.
This very dry sparkler has a medium raspberry color, light bubbles, and flavors of yeast, raspberry and light spice. It was delicious – certainly drinking very nicely right now.
My regret? I wish I had more! What are you sipping tonight?
