Today we offer you their 2009 J. Schram Brut Rosé, a blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir that spends 7-1/2 years on the lees! This is a rich and sumptuous bubbly, a beautiful salmon color, with notes of creamy baby powder, raspberries, cocoa, and leesy, mushroomy component. It’s ripe and vinous, a perfect romance-enhancer, instrument of celebration, or even an insider’s secret weapon to regale your dinner party guests.
Blended of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir coming predominately from Sonoma, the 2009 J Schram Rose has a very pale salmon/amber color and pronounced potpourri, kirsch, apple pie and cinnamon stick nose. The palate is very fine and fresh, with evolved fruit and autolytic notes layering on the complexity, finishing long and harmonious.
