The aroma profile is a stimulating blend of honeysuckle, ginger, Bing
cherry and plum tones.


The ripe fruit flavors explode on the palate with
rich layers of fresh fig, vanilla and honeysuckle, wrapped in a round and
creamy texture, and underlined by a crisp and refreshing acidity. The
aging brought out vibrant nuances of biscuits, hazelnuts, nutmeg and
vanilla beans and increased depth and complexity on the finish.

Growing Conditions

Santana Brut represents a collaboration between Mumm Napa and famed
rock guitarist Carlos Santana, where a portion of the proceeds benefit the
Milagro foundation (, a publicly supported
foundation established by Carlos Santana and his family in 1998.

Napa Valley vineyard lots had been carefully selected for their flavor
intensity and aging potential in the bottle, as this wine was aged for 48
months on the lees before disgorging.

Currently unavailable.


The individually selected lots were kept separate during initial
fermentation to highlight their vineyard differences and make the most of
their specific strengths, for a final blend of finesse, power and harmony.
The wine was disgorged after 48 months of yeast aging, adding
complexity, subtle bread dough flavors and creaminess, with a proprietary
dosage hand-selected by Carlos Santana and winemaker Ludovic Dervin
to achieve the desired Brut style.

Food Pairing

Perfect on its own as an evening starter, this wine will also pair nicely
with a wide selection of foods such as wild mushroom risotto, roasted
duck, or densely flavored game game dishes.
