Wilson Creek Almond Champagne
Temecula Valley, California

A family-owned estate vineyard and winery, Wilson Creek is located in southern California's Temecula wine country. Their signature offering is this Almond Champagne, a non-vintage blend of Colombard and Chardonnay grapes, with just a hint of pure almond added. The resulting sparkling wine tastes sweet, but not cloying, with a rich aroma and flavor much like that of marzipan.

Rating: 13/20
