2010 Schug Rouge de Noirs

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?
