Tasting notes

The 2009 J. Schram Rosé exhibits generous aromas of pineapple, strawberry, peach, and mango, balanced by aspects of shortbread, spice and honey. Concentrated flavors of juicy stonefruit and candied citrus are partnered with undertones of white pepper, graham cracker, and toasted brioche. The creamy palate is supported by a focused acidity that leads into a long, layered and clean finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Taking a place at the head of an accomplished class of sparkling in this issue, this exceptional offering starts out with a lovely, enveloping nose that combines a wealth of creamy, lightly toasty yeast with a bit of surprisingly pert and vital, mildly cherryish fruit and follows with multi-layered, fully transformed champenized flavors that are as lively as they are remarkably polished. As it consistently has been in previous vintages, this is a deep and generous wine that displays uncommon finesse, and it sets a very high standard for what the Rosé genre can be.- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (December 2018)

Coming predominately from Sonoma, the 2009 J Schram Rose has a very pale salmon/amber color and pronounced potpourri, kirsch, apple pie and cinnamon stick nose. The palate is very fine and fresh, with evolved fruit and autolytic notes layering on the complexity, finishing long and harmonious.- The Wine Advocate (October 2017)

Quite complex and subtly spicy, this elegant wine gives a full array of flavors, a crisp but polished texture and a wonderful lingering finish. It has a light-copper-gold color, aromas like ginger cookies and freshly baked bread and flavors of peaches and delicate rose petals accented by light baking spices.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
