From the bottle:
"Robert Mondavi believed that great wine was not just for special occasions. Share our Sparkling Wine with family and friends to celebrate the joy of every day.Today's wine is the first in our new series on Sparkling Wines for the Holidays, entitled "Holiday Sparklers". I'll be alternating these reviews with the other new series we started a couple days ago (Malbec Mania: Search For The Best Malbec Under $20) so whether your guests enjoy a serious red or just a little bubbly, we should have you covered. And, of course, don't forget to check out the latest Top 10 list for even more ideas!
The Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Extra Dry Sparkling Wine begins with pleasing aromas of apple, pear, lemon, honey, floral notes and a touch of cinnamon. The wine tastes very refreshing, clean and crisp. The predominant flavors are pear and lemon and this wine features good acidity along with a nice light sweetness level. The Woodbridge Extra Dry has a little bit of tartness on the finish and the lemon and cinnamon flavors linger nicely. Very good!
