GranBaron_CavaBrutI thought this wine looked promising with a fairly dignified label and its listing the percentages of the traditional Cava grapes used.  The flavors in the wine were quite tasty — ripe / tart green apple, some yellow pear / apple, a little lemon — with pleasantly crisp acid.  The carbonation was nicely smooth and rich, although at times I wished it were a little stronger.  Overall, I thought this wine was a good if not outstanding value.
