Aaron: This has a bright peach and grape nose while the flavor is a bit dry (but not too dry).  There’s a good amount of nuttiness on the flavor with almonds, while some subtle berries play a supporting role.  Definitely some dark tree bark.  89 points

Teri: This sparkling has a honey-melon nose and semi-sweet juicy flavors of peach, apricot, and a hint of lemon. Yum! If you like sparklings on a semi-sweet side this will be one of your favorites. 91 points

Aaron:  This had a bright, sharp, floral nose and the flavor isn’t too sweet (I feel this is important to clarify since some might expect it to be sugary).  I really liked the bubbles but the flavor was a little too bitter for me.  Lots of strawberry and tart rhubarb with grapefruit.  88 points.

Teri: A dry and crisp rose with light flavors of cranberry and strawberry. Not much smell to the sparkling wine, just some light strawberry. Refreshing overall. If you enjoy roses you will like this one. 89 points

Aaron:  Treveri is great and this is no exception.  This is not a sweet sparkling but it’s delicious.  The nose is a little grassy followed by an oaky flavor.  Overall, very mild and easy drinking with more granite than fruit flavors.  This tastes great.  91 points

Teri: Light nutty smell (almond and cashew) and overall not too dry and not too sweet. I tasted flavors of apricot and cherry blossoms. This one gets better as you drink it and taste additional flavors. This sparkling would pair well with spicy foods or to serve with dessert. 91 points

Info on Wine Searcher


Aaron: This is a solid brut.  Traditionally sharp and dry as you would expect, the nose is a non-factor.  I noticed pine on the flavor and not a lot of apple or pear like other sparkling wines.  89 points

Teri: Light nose, just a hint of lemon curd. Very crisp, dry and leaves you with a nice clean mouthfeel. Some grapefruit and lemon on the taste. Pleasent flavors and easy to drink. 89 points
