I'm not mad at Korbel, I mean, a player has to do what a player has got to do, but I scoff at the concept of when things are called 'American Champagne.' Unlike what is used in actual French Champagne, this wine uses Colombard and Sangiovese grapes instead of the two Pinot varietals. Colombard is used in Cognac and Armagnac, and I do like wines composed of that and Ugni-Blanc, but Sangiovese definitely threw me.
Anyway, this wine is intetresting with the primary taste being that of green apple. Bubbles are so so. For the price, it isn't bad, but there are a lot of other things out there that easily throw this under the bus.
