Located just north of Sonoma in Mendocino County, Anderson Valley is an up-and-coming California wine region. The mostly Pinot Noir and some Chardonnay grapes that go into this well-aged sparkling rose are grown in certified organic vineyards. It features slightly tart flavors of rhubarb and dried mango balanced by soft, playful bubbles.
