J SCHRAM 05 BRUT

WINE ENTHUSIAST 95 POINTS - "This fourcounty blend is a selection of what the winemakers consider their best lots of the vintage. Made from 86% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Noir, it most certainly needs some time in the cellar, as its scoury right now. But its richness is already apparent: it shows complex toast, leesy yeast, creme brle, lemondrop sour candy and ripe pear flavors. A gorgeous sparkling wine... Cellar Selection."

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2005 J. Schram is a blend of 86% Chardonnay and 14% Pinot Noir. Generally these wines are aged six years on their yeast prior to bottling. This wine, which comes from four different northern California counties (most from Napa), exhibits a light straw color along with crisp notes of pear, apple skin and brioche in a medium-bodied, complex yet delicate style with tiny pinpoint bubbles, persistent effervescence and a dry, crisp finish. This beautiful sparkling wine is intense yet delicate. It should drink well for 6-8 years."

WINE SPECTATOR 92 "Bold and opulent, yet balanced with a core of crisp and minerally fruit. Aromas of lemon tart and almond brioche open to rich flavors of apple, cinnamon and candied ginger. "
