Made to commemorate the sparkling wine the winery produced for the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit Meetings in the 1980s, this blends 74% Pinot Noir and 26% Chardonnay in a richer style, still dry, and just recently disgorged in July 2014. Complex and creamy, it offers a seductive nose of ripe apple and custard, the flavors following through in a medium-weight, mellowed way.
