@Keith Fisher and his wife were kind enough to open this after I asked what their thoughts were. I received the Save the Date email this week for their upcoming release and it seems as though they are striving to be the first cult bubbly out of Cali. This '12 is still very tart at opening. In fact, it was mainly green Granny Smith Apple with a kick of kiwi and that was it. However, after an hour and a half, a creamy note came out of this and more almonds, toasted bread and more complexity. At the 2-hr mark, this was actually extremely delicious. Based on this, I'll definitely buy a few bottles but aim to let them age AND have some air time before enjoying.

Ridiculous. Instantly sent an email looking for more. This is a great wine. Disgorged 11.15.16. Lemon, apple, brioche, yeasty goodness. As good as anything I've tasted recently. Great fruit.

Long time listener, first time drinker. This certainly holds its own on the world stage of Champagne (and methode champenois) fizzy wine. Expresses vinous power rather then toasty brioche, and I'm OK with that. Did it live up to the hype? Sure, but it didn't change my life. Do I wish there was more available so I could drink it more often? Absolutely. Also, I'd love to try this in 10 years...

Really surprising, seemed like a Champagne made oxidative but with a lot oak, and richness, not the lean stuff I remember from 10.

Best bubbles made in the USA? Just might be.... This evolved from linear and sleek, building density with air and going back and fourth between fruit and savory...fun to taste as it evolved in the glass. The table was definitely happy with it. Great job @crusewine

@Delectable this is the blanc de noirs. Bright acidity, slightly red tinged color and light red fruits. Tasty and refreshing.

This has softened and is drinking quite nicely. Very tasty sparkler.
