Salmon orange in color.  A nice mousse with small to medium bubbles.   The nose is very nice with strawberries and light lemon notes.  There is a nice depth to this wine although it turns a bit flabby on the palate.  Given that this sells for under $20, that isn't the worst thing in the world.  It is tasty and makes a nice inexpensive but festive sparkler.
