Gloria Ferrer "Sonoma Brut" Sparkling Wine

SKU #480018 89 points Wine & Spirits

 This wine is finely integrated and creamy in texture, more about richness than freshness. It finishes tight and leesy. Serve with prawns in cream sauce.  (12/ 2011)

89 points Wine Enthusiast

 This wine shows lots of finesse for the price. The mousse is exceptionally refined, carrying complex flavors of limes, strawberries, brioche, vanilla and honey. The blend is mostly Pinot Noir, with about 9% Chardonnay.  (11/ 2013)

Connoisseurs Guide

 This wine shows a clear bent to Pinot right from the first with lightly yeasty, mildly candied, loosely cherry-like aromas and rounded flavors that convey an extra touch of ripeness. Very creamy in feel and just a bit soft in balance, it drifts ever so slightly to dryness and is exposed to a hint of astringency at the end.  (11/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 Soft and pretty, with spicy nut and tropical fruit aromas leading to easygoing apple and cream flavors. Drink now.  (11/ 2013)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
