Champagne taste on a beer budget?

Spanish Cava is a great alternative to Champagne or even California Sparkling Wine, and in most cases offers a great value.  Codorniu made from Pinot Noir is one of my favorite Cava's and retails for around $19 a bottle.  This is an incredibly versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, paired with an entree or served with dessert.

I love bubbles in general so that first little blast on the tongue alerts my taste buds that something good is about to come.  This wine is crisp and balanced with aromas of strawberries and cherries.  The wine taste of raspberries and currants and finishes very clean.

The fantastic package that this wine comes in is an added bonus.  Almost like it was bottled just for Valentines Day the Rose color Pinot Noir Cava is brilliant in the thick clear bottle with a very classy label and capsule.

Cava is becoming more widely available and can be found at most stores, wine shops and even at Trader Joe's.

Love the bottle, love the label, love this review and pretty certain I will love the taste. Spanish cava + Pinot Noir grapes? What's not to love? Thanks for the awesome review, Shayne.

Wow, I'll need to pick this up the next time I'm at Trader Joe's!  I love sparkling wine and the notes that you highlighted about the taste sounds fantastic, not to mention that the color's gorgeous.  Thanks for the tip, Shayne! :)
