I enjoy this low-priced, high-value Sparkling wine. It's always the chosen sparkling wine for my special events on a budget.

No sweetness, very tart.

Better than the really cheap stuff, variable at best. I do keep a bottle around, but it is not that special

This Cava is one of the best consistent bruts on the market.

I love the crisp, tart taste to the sparkling wine.

Color: Golden, with a medium bead

Nose: Fresh citrus and crisp green apple with some lemon

Palate: Also fresh and crisp and nicely acidic, this is a great bubble quaffer with good value, everytime.

Fruity, good acid however just single flavor note. Noticeable bitterness on the finish. Better Cava's at the same price point.

Color: Meyer lemon yellow, with green highlights and a medium fine, robust bead.

Nose: Clean and bright lemon with just a tinge of cream, and some kiwi to round things off, along with some light florals.

Palate: Crisp and zesty, with that same, but now juicy lemon from the nose, those same white florals enter in the mid-palate and ride out to the juicy, multiple layered lemon finish. Good as always, and always a great value play: QPRWK.

I use the cordon negro for very lightweight sautees.
