In celebration of Schramsberg’s golden anniversary, our winemaking team is very excited to present this special, limited bottling: 2004 Late Disgorged Blanc de Noirs. It is hard to believe that 50 years have passed since Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic Schramsberg estate for the purpose of making the nation’s first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir based, bottle-fermented sparkling wines. They cleaned up the century old caves and historic buildings on the property, reestablished its vineyards, and
reopened Schramsberg’s doors at a time when there were only 22 active wineries in the Napa Valley. Today we are most thankful that they did! With this beautifully aged offering, we honor Jack and Jamie Davies, Jacob and Annie Schram who founded the estate in 1862, and all of those who have helped drive their visions to produce world-class wines. We have come a long way!

With nearly ten years of contact on the yeast, in the bottle, in our historic Diamond Mountain Caves, this sparkling wine has developed exquisite richness, depth and complexity. Extensive aging “en tirage” enables savory, nutty and seasoned attributes to evolve with fruitful caramelization, density and creaminess on the palate. With great enthusiasm, we present this one-of-a-kind offering of our Blanc de Noirs, blended from our select range of Pinot Noir vineyards in California’s North Coast. A limited
number of bottles of this wine are being made to commemorate this special year in our history.

Tasting notes

Aged nearly 10 years on the yeast in our hillside caves, the 2004 Blanc de Noirs late disgorged has developed into a expressive wine. The nose is concentrated with Mandarin orange, ripe pineapple and strawberry. The fruit is acentuated by aromas of crème brulee, hazlenut and brioche. This sparkling wine offers flavors of wild berries, peach and pineapple. The 2004 Blanc de Noirs finishes with a long crisp and mouthwatering acidity.- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
