Purchased from Treveri Tasting Room, $20

Aaron:  This wasn’t my favorite but I might just have elevated standards for Treveri. The nose reminded me of burnt strawberry which wasn’t very appealing.  There were also red floral notes which isn’t my favorite.  The flavor was somewhat bitter which might just be my palate not adjusting to using a red instead of a white grape.  There was lots of sparkle and this mellowed out on the second sip but this is not my favorite.  88 pointsimg_0460

Teri: Crisp flavors of cranberry, green apple, and strawberry with medium effervescence make this sparkling drink closer to a red. The flavors of the pinot noir grape shine through wrapped in the light airy feel of a brut sparkling wine. Visually, I also love the slight rose color of the wine and feel this bottle would be great to pair with chicken, turkey, or other white meats.  90 points
