The youngest Fredling is very musical. He loves to sing. The other night we had all been listening to REM. He went around and around the house belting out “It’s the end of the world as we know it.” Unfortunately that’s all he knew of the song so that’s all we got. A Cava I recently tried: Dibon Brut Reserve (NV) was a lot like that. It wasn’t bad, just pretty much a one note wonder. In this case it was apples. I kept hoping for at least an “and I feel fine” part either in the song or the wine, but neither ever materialized. It also had very coarse, but plentiful bubbles . As I said not bad, but there are others I like more for around the same price. I picked it up at Frederick Wine House for $10.99. It had a tag around the neck saying the Wine Enthusiast gave it 88 points but I would go 3-4 points lower. It would be really nice if you were going to use it as a base for some sparkling punch.
