Look what we found at Boston Public Market, Westport Rivers Brut Cuvée RJR 2007 – an old friend that still has its sparkle!
We visited this winning Massachusetts winery more than 15 years ago and still have fond memories of sitting outside with our last Westie Maggie toasting each other in full view of thriving grape vines.
Wandering through Boston Public Market last week, we discovered a great selection of Massachusetts wines including those from Westport Rivers.
Their RJR Brut Cuvée is mostly Pinot Noir. This sparkler became our favorite all those years ago and it’s nice to know how easy it is to find, today.
What to expect from the Award winning 2007 Westport Brut RJR:
- “Fine bubbles and a gentle mousse”
- “Notes of brioche, flint, Granny Smith apple peel, and candied lemon”
- “Rich, grippy mouthfeel with youthful acidity”
- “Long, clean finish”
- “Hints of ginger and savory tangerine”
Here’s to the Russell family that’s worked so hard to bring us consistently outstanding wines.
