TASTING NOTE: This approachable, food-friendly red sparkler is composed of 80% Chambourcin and 20% Pinot Noir. Chambourcin is a popular choice for sparkling red wines and is noted for introducing dark fruit and herbal tones along with a charming spicy complexity. Here, alongside the classic sparkling grape Pinot Noir, it has created a vibrant, lifted wine that will be great with glazed ham. Price $ 18.95
