NV Cava Reserva Painous Brut - 87 PTS - IWC

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 87 Pts"Pale gold. Delicate, restrained apple, pear and lemon zest aromas, with hints of smoke and honey. Brisk and firm in the mouth, the apple and pear flavors showing good depth without excess weight. Fresh and chewy on the back, showing good concentration and power."

NV Cava Reserva Painous Brut - 91 PTS - GOLD - BTI

bti gold 2023"Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of brown butter poached pear, marzipan, lemon and apple, and floating in the pool with the grill going with a round, crisp, finely carbonated, dry medium body and an interesting, medium-length finish manifesting notes of dried apples, apricot jam, blanched almonds, and jasmine rice with no oak flavor. Layers of flavor from fruit to earth dance on the tongue for a classic expression of sparkling wine from Catalonia."

NV Cava Reserva Painous Brut - 91 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Presented as a Cava-Joven, this gets the minimum allowed aging on its lees in bottle, keeping the ripe red fruit and edges of refreshing acidity at center stage. The wine has a dark, leesy character and lasting flavor—more of a winter sparkler for roast chicken.-J.G."
