Light garnet color. Aromas and flavors of cranberry-blueberry herb relish, pomegranate chutney, and sage and bay leaf with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, off-dry light-to-medium body and an effortless, interesting, medium-long finish with elements of citrus and berry sorbets and honeyed peach and apple with no oak flavor. A spicy and spry Brachetto-like wine that will be great with bbq or on its own for the pool party.

Sparkling Flavored Wine

Flavored wine is a category of specialty sparkling wine products that have added flavors, colors and/or carbonated water. Examples run the gamut from watermelon-flavored sparkling Rose to pineapple-flavored California sparkling wine. These wines are typically sweet, light-hearted products meant for un-fussy enjoyment.
