SCHRAMSBERG Blanc de Noirs 2015 

(North Coast, California) $43

If you’re planning on laying in a few bottles of bubbles for Thanksgiving weekend, you probably want to go American.  (Thanksgiving, after all, is the quintessential American holiday). There are a number of good choices, including one of the oldest California sparkling firms—Schramsberg, located in the forested hills above the Napa Valley. There’s an airy purity and freshness to this sparkling, at the same time that it has a yeasty richness. It’s 81% pinot noir and 19% chardonnay and spends three years on its yeast lees. A sparkling Thanksgiving? We hope so. (12.8% abv)
