This year's highest-rated California sparkling wine.

95 Points, 3 Stars out of 3, Connoisseurs’ Choice, -Connoisseurs’ Guide, “In the tradition that this wine has so clearly established over the years, the newest rendition of Schramsberg’s flagship wine delivers stunningly rich and complex sparkling wine character. Its incredibly expressive aromas smell of aged yeasts, soy, tangy lemons, freshly baked crusty bread and a quiet hint of ginger ale, and its impeccably balanced flavors follow suit from front to back. Brisk and austere, yet compelling in its layered richness, this one will keep in bottle for a few years and may improve a bit as well.”

94 Points, - Wine Enthusiast magazine, “The J Schram is a fine expression of American individuality and innovation..”

91 Points - Wine Spectator, “Bold nutty, yeasty aromas mix with ripe pear and citrus notes and lead to full-bodied apple, cherry pie, ginger and cinnamon flavors. The finish is rich and distinctive”

International Wine Review - “First released in 1992, this is Schramsberg’s premier chardonnay based sparkler. Fermented in both oak and stainless steel and aged give years in Diamond Mountain caves, this may be California’s best Champagne-style wine. Deep gold in color with autolytic aromas of caramel, yeast and baguette, the J. Schram has very fine bubbles, rich, ripe apple pie and crème brulee flavors. An exceptional wine that should be paired with exceptional food!”
