The 9998 Cruse Wine Co. Tradition Sparkling Wine from California is a remarkable white wine that embodies elegance and complexity. This proprietary blend, with its unconventional vintage year of 9998, is a true gem that showcases the innovation and artistry of the winemakers at Cruse Wine Co.

In the glass, the wine displays a captivating white color that shimmers with brilliance, inviting you to indulge in its charm. The aromatics are tantalizing, as notes of burnt lemon peel and freshly baked bread intertwine, creating a tangy and wild bouquet that captures the senses.

On the palate, this sparkling wine reveals its true character. The light-bodied texture is incredibly creamy, a result of the base wines undergoing full malolactic conversion. This lends a luscious mouthfeel that is both comforting and enticing. The balance between tangy acidity and a long, electric finish is truly remarkable, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.

Renowned wine critic Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded this wine an impressive score of 93 points. The publication praised its tangy and wild nose, creamy texture, and alluring finish. Decanter, another esteemed wine publication, also awarded this wine a score of 93 points. They described it as mystifying for its elegance and outlying, perplexing savory qualities, with notes of toasted nuts, fresh-cut hay, bruised red berries, bacon fat, dried herbs, and crushed almonds.

The grapes for this Tradition Sparkling Wine were sourced from esteemed vineyards such as Rorick Heritage Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills AVA, Alder Springs in Mendocino, Keefer Ranch and Heintz in the Russian River Valley, and the Linda Vista Vineyard in Napa's Oak Knoll area. The meticulous winemaking process, including native and malolactic fermentation in barrel and wooden tanks, as well as the absence of added sulfur during élevage, showcases the commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

With its exceptional quality and captivating flavor profile, the 9998 Cruse Wine Co. Tradition Sparkling Wine is a must-try for wine enthusiasts seeking a unique and extraordinary experience. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with a delectable meal, this wine is sure to elevate any occasion.
