Lady Edythe Reserve

2011 Carneros


Named in honor of the matriarch of the Frank Family, Edythe, the Lady Edythe Reserve is a beautifully mature and rich sparkling wine. It shines with minerality and texture of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from our Lewis Vineyard in Carneros. Its intensity and concentration come from resting on spent yeast for nearly five years before disgorgement. The six additional months spent resting post-disgorgement make for a ripe, yet toasty wine, crisp and deliciously in balance.

"It leads with a sophisticated, beautifully composed nose of lightly citrusy fruit and minerals overlain by the toasty autolysis borne from its five years on the yeast and follows with very deep, like-minded flavors that confidently hit all of the Champenoise bases with a great sense of grace."

Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
