Wine of the Week: NV Scharffenberger Cellars Brut Rosé Excellence

A bottle of bubbly is a nice indulgence for Mother’s Day, and this sparkling wine from Mendocino County fits the occasion perfectly. It’s a roughly 50-50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir and has a pretty salmon hue. The racy flavors are mostly strawberry, raspberry and lemon, accented by some creaminess. Fine bubbles lead to a persistent finish. The suggested retail price is $29, but you should be able to find it for less.
