Extra dry actually means slightly sweet, and this pick fits the profile perfectly. Judges loved the tiny, delicate bubbles. As one fan said, "There was a party in my glass." This winner contains four different types of grapes, including chardonnay and pinot noir, two of California's most famous.

TASTING NOTES: Editors tasted almonds, grass, and bread.
FUN FACT: Korbel bubbly was served at the past seven U.S. presidential inaugurations, from Reagan's to Obama's.
