Schramsberg 2001 J. Schram North Coast

Tasting notes: The Schramsberg 2001 J. Schram North Coast is composed of 78 percent chardonnay and 22 percent pinot noir. Aromas of apple blossom and tropical fruit lie atop the creamy scent of hazelnut gelato, while the wine’s delicate effervescence teases the tongue with flavors of fresh peach, lime sorbet, and pineapple. Worth knowing: Jacob Schram is among the handful of European immigrants who, in the 19th century, found his way to Napa Valley and founded one of the New World’s most successful wine regions. After his death and the onset of Prohibition, the once-bustling winery grew quiet, though it was declared a state historical landmark in 1957. Not until 1965, when the property came into the hands of the Davies family, was fine winemaking practiced there once again.
