Mumm Napa non-vintage Rutherford Brut Prestige

Very pale straw color, tint of green. Vigorous bubbles.

Citrus and melon smells, a bit of just-popped toaster.

Canteloupe, grapefruit, fresh-baked bread, maybe cherry. Brut, for sure, but the end is a bit too sweet for my taste.

I'd buy again for $19.99, but I've got more New World sparklers to try first.

It's not champagne. Even if it's improved by the addition of well-aged reserve wine it's still not champagne but it's quite acceptable fizz all the same.
