Wine Enthusist Review
Paula Kornell honors her family's longtime roots in California sparkling wine with this tremendously delicious blend of 98% Pinot Noir and 2% Chardonnay. Bright, bursting acidity gives it enduring lift in the glass, highlighted by Meyer lemon, wet stone and sea breeze. This is a standout sparkler with length and complexity.
Wine Tasting Notes
Coming from fruit grown in Los Carneros, the coolest area of Napa Valley, this delicate, elegant, and sophisticated sparkling wine is a stunning debut from Paula Kornell. The approachable, quietly generous nose enjoys aromas of crisp green apples, lemon zest, succulent pears, tender peaches, freshly baked pastry, and brioche. Almost solely made from Pinot Noir, there's a small dosage, which adds weight and depth to the palate, balanced by zesty acidity that lingers on a fresh, drying, and persistent finish. This is a wine with finesse and light, subtle delicacy. This gorgeous wine is for the table, to be shared and enjoyed with food and friends as a celebration of life.
Suggested Pairings: Distinctly vinous on the palate, the Napa Valley Blanc de Noir pairs perfectly with a diverse array of foods like figs, prosciutto, Epoisses, chicken liver pate, anchovy pizza, or a goat cheese omelette.
