A great bottle of wine

Piper Sonoma Methode Champenoise Blanc De Noir, Sonoma County

A wonderful blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier, and chardonnay together in a creamy, judiciously well blended reserve. The nose is a floral bouquet. The palate is fresh red berries and hints of pink grapefruit. Crisp citrus flavors meld with notes of sweet creamy fruit and mineral accents. Blanc de noir means “white from reds” and this is what gives this wine its pink tinged color. Exceptional! [Suggested retail $16.99, on sale at $9.99. Good Life Grocery, 448 Cortland Ave., S.F.]
