Pale amber salmon color. Inviting aromas of buttered brioche, orange marmalade, apricot-mango yogurt, and iced apple Danish with a velvety, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, subtle, long sourdough with strawberry jam, dried bananas, southern biscuits, and hint of maple finish with moderate oak. A delicious rose Sonoma sparkler that satisfies with classic notes of brioche and succulent strawberry.

Brut

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Brut is a term that defines dryness levels in sparkling wines; it is most famously used for Champagne, but it is a common term used around the world for most sparkers.

While Brut means "dry" for all intents and purposes, it can actually be off-dry or even lightly sweet. The definition of Brut for Champagne is between 0-12 grams of residual sugar, so Brut actually describes a range of sensations.

No matter how dry a Brut sparkling wine actually is in technical terms, it is generally dry enough to serve at the dinner table with most foods.
