Korbel Sparkling Wine Russian River Valley 2007

External Review:

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. The concept of "natural", or "naturel" in the French spelling, is of a sparkling wine that comes to market without having any sugar added. Most bubblies have a small amount of sweetness, as does this one, because it adds balance to a wine that is otherwise high in acidity. It works here regardless of nomenclature, and the wine's toasty first aromas are nicely supported by a well-bubbled, lightly caramelly palatal approach and comfortable, crisply fruity, rich flavors.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
