Review of 2006 Domaine Carneros Brut

Happy Hour: 2006 Domaine Carneros Brut

Although I've driven by the Domaine Carneros winery in Napa countless times, until this weekend, I had never checked it out. Upon arrival at the busy sparkling wine house, which sits on a hill overlooking rolling fields of grapes, one is invited to a sampling of their sparklers. My favorite pour was the 2006 Brut Cuvée ($26). It's light on the palate, refreshingly dry, with a crisp clean finish and classic pale golden color. The bubbles are tiny, ticklish, and airy, while the aroma is slightly floral and the flavor fruity. Although it's a traditional bubbly, it's perfectly executed and definitely worth a sip.

Have you tried Domaine Carneros Brut or been to the winery?
