Gloria Ferrer Brut
Wine EnthusiastMade from mostly Pinot Noir grapes, with an addition of 8.8% Chardonnay, this Méthode Champenoise wine is sultry in raspberry cream and crème brûlée, with enough acidity to keep it fresh in the glass. The finish offers a taste of toast with ginger jam.
Wine SpectatorAppealingly creamy and spicy aromas lead to balanced, succulent flavors of baked pear and Meyer lemon. Drink now. 87,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateTheir NV Sparkling Sonoma Brut, which is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend and probably their largest production, has attractive notes of white currant, green apple and grapefruit in a fresh, straightforward, easygoing style. Drink it over the next several years.
