Domaine Ste Michelle non-vintage Columbia Valley Spumante Frizzante

Very pale color, vigorous small bubbles.

Floral pear smells.

Sweet pear nectar, apple juice.

The overriding characteristic here is sweetness. Clearly this is mean to emulate an Italian Asti Spumante and it does so creditably. To lien it to a Champagne, think Sec or Demi-Sec.

A pleasant enough sweeter $14.99 fizz. Not really to my taste, but I didn't feel the need to dump it. Not buying again, though. In fact, I didn't need to resort to the rough-and-ready mimosas with which I finish many bottles of New World Sparklers.
