Cruse Wine Co Tradition Sparkling Rosé NV
The Cruse Tradition Rose is a sourced from several sites including Rorick Heritage Vineyard high in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Alder Springs from Mendocino County, Keefer Ranch in Sonoma, and a small amount of wine for Linda Vista in Napa.
68% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay, the wine is a pale, peachy salmon, with a soft gentle mousse. The nose is slightly toasty, with cherry, biscuit, and clean, mossy, forest floor — like one would find in older California Pinot Noir. The palate is bright acid and rich, marzipan, and unripe strawberries.
