This overpriced Cava is all about the packaging and not much about the quality of the wine in the bottle. It smells acrid and burnt, and while the mouthfeel is fine, it tastes sulfuric and dried out, with a bitter finish. And that's not saying anything about the gold glitter flakes that float throughout this weird, pricey Cava.
