Schramsberg Reserve 2008

SKU 40880


Aroma: The 2008 Reserve exhibits bursting, fruitful aromas of red apple, caramelized pear and lemon bar, that gain complexity with touches of toffee, honey and candied pecan. Flavors: Baked orange cake, vanilla custard, and shortbread cookie are followed by developed notes of graham cracker and cinnamon. The palate is rich on entry with a dense structure supported by long, mouthwatering acidity. Pairings: Schramsberg Reserve is well-suited with a main course, such as fruit-stuffed veal, pork tenderloin, roasted duck with mango, cedarplank grilled salmon, and curried chicken salad. This flavorful sparkling wine can also be served as an apéritif with smoked oysters, caviar and such hard cheeses as aged Swiss Sbrinz, Sonoma Vella Jack, or Irish Coolea.

Wine EnthusiastAn especially deep-gold color and enticing, expansive aromas indicate the extra aging time this Pinot Noir-based bubbly went through. Ripe pear, honey and toasted-almond notes weave across the palate as a rich mouthfeel is picked up by fine yet persistent bubbles. It is a delicious, mature wine that shows how complex and rewarding California sparkling wine can be with time. Keep through 2022.
