US Sparkling Wines Reviews

City Winery 2012 Brut Nature North Fork of Long Island
89 points
$49
Bright golden yellow color. Fruity, toasty aromas of butter poached apple and fennel with a supple, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length grapefruit zest, caramel pecan tart, nutmeg, and chalk finish with well-integrated, medium tannins. A crisp and sophisticated domestic blanc de blanc for celebrations.
Coyote Moon Vineyards 2016 Semi-Sparkling Moscato
85 points
$15.80
Bright silver color. Fruity aromas and flavors of juicy apples and pears, gooseberry and cantaloupe, Turkish delight, and peaches in vanilla cream with a silky, soft, petillant, sweet thin body and a graceful, brisk finish with soft, fruit tannins and no oak. A sweet and petillant wine for spritzes.
85 points $15.80
Loma Prieta 2014 Sparkling Pinotage Blanc de Noirs Lodi
84 points
$49
Bright yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of struck match, green apple, and buttermilk with a silky, lively, fizzy, dryish light body and a brisk brie rind and lemon drop finish with silky tannins and a suggestion of oak. A festive sparkler for cheese pairings.
