Last Thursday was Thanksgiving and there was a small but raucous celebration with close family that involved no alcohol. Saturday was the main celebration with extended family and it involved wine and beer. The food was good and the wine was adequate.
The biggest disappointment was the Piper Sonoma Brut sparkling wine. The bubble action was decent but the wine was totally tart, green apples in taste. I could find no yeasty aromas that I like and no secondary tastes to pique my interest. The wine was listed at $24 but was on sale for $16. It was drinkable but not a wine I would buy again even at the sale price.
