We hope everyone is having a joyous holiday season. This offer will be brief and to-the-point, as we all have plenty of distractions this time of year.

Domaine Carneros is one of the leading sparking wine houses in California. Located in Carneros at the south end of the Napa Valley, many of you may have been to or driven past the massive Chateau and estate on your way to/from a day of tasting. The estate is also the US outpost of the famed Taittinger empire in Champagne, and their wines show a distinctly French influence.

The 2006 Domaine Carneros Brut Carneros is the key wine in the estate’s lineup, the highest volume and most broadly distributed wine in their portfolio. 2006 was an excellent vintage in California, with many producers making excellent wines and this is no exception. A combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this wine is made in a classic, crowd-pleasing style. Mainstream reviewers have lined up in support, including notably our friends at the Wine Spectator who raved about it:

Festive and vibrant, but rich and complex, with bright aromas of fresh cherry and lemon that lead to luscious flavors of raspberry, yeasty pear and crisp mineral. Drink now. 91 Points, $26 release price.

If you are looking for a sparkling wine to have in the cellar in quantity to occasionally spice up a mid-week dinner, or an incredibly well-priced party choice for New Year’s Eve consumption, this is a fantastic selection. We have received a special year-end inventory clearance deal on this from one of our top distributors, so our pricing simply can’t be beat:
