MUMM Napa Valley Brut Prestige Sparkling Wine, $16.29-$19.99, 90 points, erupted in an effervescent storm of typical fizziness (I forgot my bubble-calibrator in San Francisco), the color was that of light brass.
Aromatic toasty apple and pome blossoms were good.
Light, trending light-plus body managed tart citrus with crisp pome fruit and ginger notes.
Finished long with the lingering flavor of Pinot Noir, apple, and a good shot of the 12.5% alcohol.
Varietals were a blend of mostly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but dollops of Pinot Meunier and Pinot Gris are supposed to be in there as well.
Perfectly dry and acidic while pairing perfectly with my Asian cuisine.
