Tasting notes

The 2007 J. Schram Rosé shows generous aromas of fresh strawberry, dark Amarna cherries and orange zest, followed by nuances of brioche and toasted hazelnut. Flavors of raspberry and cherry are complemented by watermelon, Meyer lemon and vanilla cream. The palate finishes with lingering flavors of tangerine and pie crust. The texture is both viscous and mouthwatering with long and savory acidity.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Another effort, and one that I intend to purchase and serve to guests, is the 2007 J. Schram Rosé, which has a North Coast appellation and is 51% barrel-fermented (1,200 cases). The wine is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. This is a killer sparking rosé, and really the best sparkling wine I've ever tasted from California or the New World. Rich, full-bodied, with notes of strawberry, kirsch, cherries and rose petals. The wine has terrific intensity, wonderful freshness, a full-bodied, gorgeously proportioned mouthfeel and a long, long finish.- Wine Advocate (December 2015)

Elegant and almost ethereal, this wine is tantalizing and irresistible. It shows sophistication, from the mysterious, earthy bouquet to the complex, well-aged brioche and peach flavors, as well as the almost gentle texture and refined finish. While full bodied, the wine has great balance, as all the tasty components join together to weave their magic.- Wine Enthusiast Editor's Choice (June 2016)

71% Chardonnay; 29% Pinot Noir. Seamlessly combining the cherry-like fruit and vinosity of Pinot Noir with an absolute wealth of autolyzed yeast and very clear in its grasp of what a serious Rosé should be, the latest J. Schram version is a fascinating wine of extraordinary layering, depth and polish. It is explosively bubbled and its very fine mousse lasts and lasts, and, while showing a bit of finishing grip that indelibly marks it is as a true Rosé, its altogether remarkable sense of refinement puts it in a class all its own.- Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine (March 2016)
