N/V M Lawrence Obama Brut Batch #13
This Obama wine was $16 at the local shop and an obvious choice....not unlike the candidate himself.
A fruity nose – peachy for the most part.
Putting politics and the label aside, this is probably the best M. Lawrence wine we've tried. Loads of fruit – peach, strawberry, some citrus as well – a little bit sweet but light in body which I think really brings it together nicely.
Tropical fruit on the finish – papaya, pineapple, and a bit of orange blossom.
This is a solid wine from a fantastic producer – I've tried a bunch of sparkling wines, hundreds if you consider what we've done at wine tastings – and simply put L Mawby is among the best sparkling wine producers in the United States. This wine, along with many of their others, is proof why.
