Elegant and focused, with creamy vanilla and apple aromas and rich yet crisp flavors of baked pear and cinnamon bread. Drink now through 2014.

Truth or consequences, N.M., is an unlikely place to make sparkling wine, but this blanc de noirs proves the Gruet family knew what they were doing when they planted their vineyards 4,300 feet above sea level. Among the highest in the country, they benefit from sunny days and chilly evenings. A blend of 75 percent Pinot Noir with the rest Chardonnay, the wine is aged a minimum of two years.

Very pale color; extreme amount of finer bubbles and nice long mousse thanks to methode champenoise; the earthy flavor of green apple skins gives way to the tartness of a honey crisp apple.

Another success from this noteworthy New Mexico producer. This non-vintage blanc de noirs has a fairly yeasty nose with a soft, creamy mouthfeel. Not as high in acid as many, its charms lie in the pretty raspberry flavors.

Pale straw hue. Deep fruit aromas have a pear and apple quality. Broad and fruit on the attack with a moderately full body and a generous finish showing spice and yeast flavors. Drink now

Made from 75% pinot noir and 25% chardonnay; strawberry fruit and a dry yeast nose lead to a fairly dry finish; high acid yet a creamy texture.

Pale straw appearance. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Citrusy, melon-kile aromas. Fruit salad flavors that follow. Rather brashly fruity and straightforward.

…has a perfume and tastes of apple, citrus, pineapple and hints of passion fruit and pear. It is crisp and fresh and has medium length.

Quite yeasty, with light strawberry and lemon notes. Crisp and lean, with apple/pear flavors; zippy finish. Apple crêpes.
