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.
