Mumm Napa Brut Prestige

A few weeks ago we drank a Mumm Napa Rose sparkling wine, and it was a little too sweet and fruity for my tastes.  This time the sparkler of choice was the Mumm Napa Brut Prestige from Napa Valley. 

Good bubbles in the glass and a fruity nose of ripe apples and peaches.  Full flavored and very fruity taste, though nowhere near as fruity as the rose'.  The acid was good, but I prefer more.  The finish was tart but the very end left a residual sweetness. 

We drank this with a smoked trout and creme fresh dip served with toast points and apple slices. The wine improved greatly with the trout as the smokiness in the trout seemed to tame some of the sweetness in the wine.  Good match and everyone liked the two together. 

Bottom line - this was a bargain at $16 but at it's usual $24 I wouldn't buy another.

12.5% alcohol and $16
