Aaron Lieberman’s emerging sparkling program from Pommard clone Pinot Noir off Chalice Estate Vineyard in the Lorane Valley led to the third Platinum in the past two years for proprietor Pamela Frye. In the flute, the orange/salmon wardrobe carries a brilliant mousse that allows for a stream of Rainier cherry, boysenberry and cranberry in a mouthwatering finish. Award: San Francisco Chronicle (gold).
