So, this is supposed to be some good wine and I chose to take the plunge.  At $22 a bottle, this wasn't a very expensive dip, but it wasn't a cheap one either. 

This wine is complicated, giving you a combination of honey and cinnamon which is very weird for me in a sparkling wine.  This actually would be great with honey buns or a honeyed ham.  I would gauge that this is because of Pinot Noir grapes versus Chardonnay grapes.  The finish is very long and the bubbles very tiny.

This wine is a keeper and more people should try this one.
