An elegant Cava, this feels rich and composed. Its simple pearlike fruit integrates with the bubbles and the dosage, providing a clean, complete and satisfying length of flavor. Easy to enjoy on its own, yet substantial enough for veal sautéed with sage and mushrooms.

Segura Viudas keeps turning out exceptional sparkling wines, at very reasonable prices. Forget the bare-bones Cavas, the austere fruit, the slight rubbery quality you try to ignore because you only paid $5 for the bottle. Think instead of creamy, effervescent fruit, full, mouth-filling flavors and rich, distinctive yeastiness. Think of layered flavors, a little complexity and sophistication. So you’re spending $10 instead of $5. The wine is more than twice as good.

A cava for a voyage to the spice islands: Anise, cinnamon and spiced apple are lifted to the lip of the glass by the soft, rising bubbles in this blend of macabeo (50%), xarel-lo (15) and parellada (35). The texture is lively, full of sweet apple fruit underlain by a lemon-lime briskness, and the flavors are wrapped in a gentle hint of sweetness. This calls out for the richness of pata negra ham or honey-rubbed spare ribs.

A classic cava from top to bottom. The nose offers familiar baked apple, mineral and saline aromas, while the palate is exceedingly fresh in its delivery of pineapple, apple and nectarine flavors. A fruity yet crisp number that foams up nicely on the palate but doesn’t lose it’s focus or form.

Aria leans more to the sweetish side than the reserva, full of lemony flavor and a sweet creaminess; a spine of acidity keeps it together, and asks for another sip.

There more fresh fruit in this Cava than nutty, oxidative tones. It’s perfumed with sweet apple and pear, soft with a hint of sweetness to balance the toasty lees. For roast fish.

Mineral, lime and crisp apple aromas give it a precise, pure nose. And that same character exists on the palate and finish, where white peach, green banana and melon flavors are full and forward. Shows good concentration and quality for a large-production bubbly at this price.

Light and mildly yeasty, with aromatic hints of campfire marshmallow and scrambled eggs. Primed across the palate, with lively acids propelling pure tangerine and lemon-pith flavors. Finishes clean and crisp, with even more citrus.

Fresh notes of mushrooms and floral scents of jasmine add depth and breadth to this wine's nutty fruit. The finish is zesty; it will perk up gambas al ajillo.

While the fruit of this wine has a sweet, baked apple flavor, pale yeastiness lends a subtle balance, finishing with a clean, fresh feel. A fine, gentle sparkler for toasts.

Standard as good brut Cavas go, with yeast, citrus and a hint of matchstick on the nose. The palate shows a good fabric comprised of lemon-lime and apple flavors. Good up front but a little weak on the back end and finish. Still, as a whole this is perfectly good, affordable bubbly that does what it’s supposed to do.

Crushed vitamins and frothy notes work the nose, while the palate is fairly fresh and clean, with apple as the lead flavor. The body is solid if standard, as is the depth of fruit and overall quality. By now Aria brut is a known entity; always a safe bet.

Creamy, with bread dough and toasted almond notes mixing with more subtle flavors of star fruit, green melon and thyme. Drink now.

Slightly heavy and wheaty on the nose, but not yeasty or complex. The palate is big, chunky and ripe, with sweet mango and apple flavors. Gets a touch flabby on the finish but stays upright and correct.

Apple, petrol and mineral define the nose. The lime and apple on the tongue are standard and crisp. Medium weight on the palate, with some sweetness.

84 pts. : July 29, 1999

Pale straw hue. Nutty, faintly oxidized aromas. Crisp, lemony flavors on the attack, with a moderately light body and fine effervescence. Finishes cleanly with tart apple flavors. Drink now.

Segura Viudas is one of the top names in Cava, the classic Spanish sparkling wines, and its Aria cuvée is crisp, citrusy and refreshing - ideal as an aperitif, and for holiday toasts.
