Best of Best Set (3 x 750 mL)

This is a 3-pack set of our 2011 vintage Tête de Cuvée sparking wines: one bottle each of J. Schram Rosé, J. Schram and Reserve.

The 2011 North Coast wine grape harvest was as late a harvest as we've had. Crop levels were also lighter than normal with ripeness developing at lower sugar levels, giving winemakers the opportunity to make flavorful, elegant wines. A wet winter and spring delayed bloom and hindered fruit set, which decreased the overall crop load. A generally cool summer prolonged the growing season and harvest started very late in most areas. Wines of this vintage are quite noteworthy for their vibrant, fruitful acidity, promising exceptional aging potential in the cellar.

Tasting notes

The 2011 J. Schram Rosé immediately pleases the eye with its copper tinged, pale salmon color. It opens with aromas of cherry and peach cobbler, balanced by aspects of baked pineapple, apricot, marzipan and roasted pear. Layers of candied citrus, lemon meringue and nectarine suffuse the palate, with honey and brown sugar adding additional complexity. Rich, fruitful and closing with a tangy long finish, this wine is truly a feast for the senses."

"The 2011 J. Schram opens with pleasant aromas of baked pear, lemon meringue and baked apple, enhanced by nuances of toffee and honey. The rich palate features fruitful elements of baked pineapple and Meyer lemon, layered with crystallized ginger. Good depth on the finish is driven by a backbone of lingering natural acidity."

"The 2011 Reserve opens with aromas of baked pear, caramel apple, honey, graham cracker and cinnamon toast that gain complexity with touches of marzipan and dried orange peel. Bright flavors of apricot and peach crumble are supported with a fresh acidity on the palate, and finish with toasty nuances of glazed orange, ginger and grilled pineapple.
