Wine Enthusiast Rates Rack & Riddle Brut 90 Points!

Some big news with a “pop!” Wine Enthusiast magazine has rated Rack & Riddle's Brut a coveted 90 Points!! Shop here.

This Brut is a blend of premium North Coast grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, aged 18-22 months en tirage.

Made in the centuries-old Champagne method—each Rack & Riddle bottle is its very own fermentation vessel. Winemakers added yeast and the magic began… “The bubbles are born in the bottle,” as Rack & Riddle Executive Winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster says.

No special occasion is necessary to pop this delicious bubbly, but if you prefer to save a bottle for a special celebration, you can—it has aging potential and its long shelf life means you can enjoy this wine for months or even years to come. Another big plus? This Brut is well-balanced, and pairs well with virtually every food.

The winemakers at Rack & Riddle have been “racking” up the awards. More than 20 Best of Class, Gold medals and 90+ point ratings have been awarded to the Rack & Riddle family of four sparkling wines. On top of the latest 90 point rating from Wine Enthusiast, Rack & Riddle’s Brut has also garnered Double Gold and Gold medals in the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, and Gold in the International Women’s Wine Competition.

“Citrus, pear and floral aromas with a hint of yeast. The fine mousse brings forth the light citrus, smooth and round in the mouth. Finish is round, with a note of grapefruit.
