This is the fourth Graham Beck wine that I have had, and only the third bubbly from them.  This one is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir.  The bubbles are very fine, meaning that the quality is very good.  In this wine, I taste some green melon offset by a little bit of butterscotch.  This is great, but I like their Brut Rose better.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
