Mumm Napa Wines Rutherford
One of several California sparkling-wine operation with a leading Champagne house as owner. The regular Champagne from the parent can occasionally disappoint but the California Brut Cuvée Prestige offers a very attractive, well-priced alternative. It is fresh and forward with just a touch of bready yeast character. A Reserve Brut is also offered. The DVX Vintage cuvée is of a different order, combining forward fruit with a rich, leesy character and a firm, balanced structure for short ageing on release. The range has now been extended with another premium wine, Cuvée M, which blends the Pinot Noir with Muscat. A red version is also now made and combines mainly Pinot with a little Syrah. A small number of wines are available solely at the winery and include a DVX Vintage rosé, premium Brut Santana wines and a number of still wines. (DM)
