Wine Whore Review:
Score = 8/10 Points
(stats below)





Summary:
The piercing pop of a cork releases a flood of vibrant images and emotions. This triumphant blast is followed by laughter, excitement, and sometimes even sadness. Reflecting on this as I popped the cork on a bottle of Barefoot Extra Dry sparkling bubbly, a smile effervesced across my face. Thoughts and memories filled my head as the bubbly proudly ran over the lip of the delicate flute. I reminisced of times past celebrating arm in arm with those I love. No other part of life can be more satisfying.

This Extra Dry Barefoot Bubbly is the casual companion for the moments in life that beg to be enjoyed. Unpretentious and fun, Barefoot Wine holds the most awarded CA wines under $10 which makes popping open a bottle of this bubbly an excellent way to celebrate without monetary guilt. Regrettably, all parties end eventually. Like a polite guest, this seductively smooth and sweet taste departs with the gracious farewell of a crisp dry finish.

The only thing more rewarding than enjoying a good celebration with a good glass of sparkling wine is sharing the moment with other wine lovers and friends. This week I have the chance of fulfilling all of these goals as I get Barefoot with fellow wine lover and blogger from Wine at Five? If you haven�t had the chance to meet her, I recommend grabbing a bottle of whatever you enjoy, pulling up a chair, and warming yourself by the light of a glowing computer monitor projecting her review of this wine.


Recommended Food Pairing:
Winemaker Jen Wall says that this sparkling wine is "Terrific with lighter meals such as salads and seafood." While the crisp and fresh flavor would have been welcome to the party, I chose to taste this bubbly with no other accompaniment than the warm companionship of my wife.



Vintage Info:
�This wine has a fresh flavor and is smooth. It has flavours of rose grapefruit, ripe fruits like peaches and quince. A balanced wine with great fineness in aromas and flavours. It presents intense floral aromas combined with tropical fruit and citric notes.�

Wine Whore Score:




Despite being recognized with more than 250 awards each year since 2004, Barefoot Wine is not exclusive or elitist. Their wines aim to be delicious, affordable, and enjoyed by everyone, from �first-time wine consumers to long-time connoisseurs�. This fun soft and smooth sparkling wine comes in with a total of 32 out of 40 points and an average score of 8 out of 10 points. While often overlooked, Barefoot Bubbly�s cost, availability, and enjoyability set the stage for a celebration that you will never forget.

Great job Randy. This one goes to you by a slim margin.
Gone Hob Nobbin and Barefoot. Please, I don't want to know when you review "Menage A Trois"

Barefoot Cellars makes several inexpensive but tasty wines. I've had their chardonnay, which is good, their white zinfandel, which was excellent, and their muscat, which was incredible! I haven't seen their bubbly around yet, but I will be on the lookout for it.
