I needed some bubbly outside of what I had at home, and I didn't feel like driving to Jersey.  So, I picked this one up because I do like the producer.  This wine is 55% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 10% Viognier.  However, it has nothing spectacular to it and just basically rates above Barefoot bubbly in my book.  The Viognier makes the taste awkward and if you ask me, they just wasted several tons of grapes.
