Jacob's Creek Sparkling Chardonney Pinot Noir

Really lovely, sweet sparkling wine. Lots of peach and sweet grape. Very Ca. chard. That said it drinks OK. would be great for Mimosa's or some other champagne cocktail. Bougtht this at Food Lion for $10. Our first bottle to celebrate the inauguration was the domestic Mums but this was a fine second bottle for the assembled troops. This vs. Korbel ??? probably Korbel Brut, its a bit drier. But for a contrast or a mixer this works well.

Will buy again
Will recomment
Will not give as a gift probably (maybe a cheap gift)

Mumm's Napa Brut Prestige

Bought this for New Years A classic sparkling wine from Napa. Beautiful color a hint of diamonds. Nice small bubbles. I would serve this to anyone. A great alternative to pricier French champagne. Peaches, hint of citrus and a little vanilla. Nice lingering finish.

  • Would buy again (and again and again)
  • Would give as a gift

$20 at Harris Teeter
