J. Schram Schramsberg 1999
The 1999 J. Schram opens with aromas of glazed pineapple, orange marmalade and crisp green apples. Just-baked puff pastry and rich creamy notes are derived from barrel fermentation (38%) and yeast aging.
This powerful sparkling wine showcases the bright citrus and tangy, tropical fruit of the Tognetti, Hyde and Schwarze Chardonnay vineyards along Bayview Avenue in southern Napa Carneros. The addition of 26% Pinot Noir lends subtle red fruit aromas and gives breadth to both the nose and palate. A creamy yet refreshing wine, the 1999 J. Schram has a long, quenching, seamless finish.
