Pale in color with lovely citrus and mineral nose. On the mid palate the cava is a crisp dry wine with citrus notes to match the nose and some nice minerality to close out the tastes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some slight citrus and crisp acidity. This is a super food friendly small bubble Cava. Yumm. I would give it an 88-89. Not a bad deal for the price!

Bohigas Reserva Brut Cava Sparkling — VINTAGES#: 401216
My favorite of the two sparkling Cavas is the non-vintage Brut Reserva Cava. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years. Drink: 2013-2015. Score – 90. (Robert Parker Jr., erobertparker.com, Aug. 2013) $17.95
