Gorgeous foam leads this wine, a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. Golden peach in color with a dry, savory strawberry richness and smooth texture, it is buoyed by solid acidity. Estate-grown, this is a stellar California sparkler, incredibly well-priced and versatile.

Year in and year out, Roederer Estate’s Rosé ranks with the best of its class, and this latest offering gets very high marks for its fine champenization and buoyant fruit. It is quite firm in balance with plentiful, pinpointy bubbles, and its seamless mix of bright berries and creamy yeast goes on and on at the finish. It steers away from the slight astringency that marks some of its cousins, and, while it will shine with foods ranging from duck to salmon, it is downright delicious on its own.

Sleek and rich, with floral strawberry and sugar cookie aromas and elegant, layered citrus, tart cherry and mineral flavors that linger toward a vibrant, lightly spicy finish. Drink now through 2015. 5,200 cases made.
