“It should be no surprise that Pinot Noir sparklingwine from Huff Estates will fantastic. The “big brother” Peter F Huff Cuvée is consistently one of the best bottles of bubbly in the province. Janine is most definitely a little more approachable and gulpable than the “serious” big brother, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Soft Raspberry, Cranberry and Cherry on the nose and in the glass with bright, crisp acidity on the finish. There are nice citrus notes that work in perfect tandem with the red fruit. I realize this may be a little more money than people are comfortable spending for a Friday night Netflix binge session, but to be honest it punches out of its weight class and should be enjoyed at more than just your special occasions.”
