Winemaker's Notes:

Number 97 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

This brut exhibits a lively, yet delicate pear-like bouquet that sets it apart from other sparkling wines. The fresh fruit flavors are backed by a subtle and developing toastiness. In sipping the wine, the effervescence gives way to a creamy roundness, classic in a predominantly Pinot Noir blend.

Excellent with spicy prawns over pasta, grilled salmon, roasted chicken, clam chowder or crab cakes.

My Notes:

About Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards:

Gloria Ferrer is the offspring of a powerful parent: Freixenet of Spain, the world's largest producer of sparkling wine. Drawn to the promise of California, Freixenet established a California winery, naming it after the wife of Freixenet's president. The winery in Carneros is one of the best stops in all of Wine Country. Visit the aging caves carved in the hillside and enjoy the sun-splashed deck while noshing on roasted almonds and sipping bubbly. Wines produced are Blanc de Noir, Brut, Brut Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose.
