Every wine lover I know believes as I do: It doesn’t require a holiday to pop the cork out of a bottle of bubbly. Whether I have two guests or many, every occasion begins with Champagne or sparkling wine, and I consider it a must for brunch. This Napa Valley-grown sparkler is made with Pinot Noir, so it’s more full-bodied, layered with flavors of strawberries and black cherries, highlighted with bright lemon and spice notes. Fantastic on its own, it’s a great choice for Dungeness crab, ham and cheese omelets, smoked fish, smoked cheese, or lobster. This has been one of the better deals in the local marketplace; whereas it’s normally $20, you can pick it up at BevMo! for only $14.99.
