Winemaker's Notes:

Black cherry and ripe plum aromas followed by eucalyptus and fresh herbs announce this earthy Pinot Noir. On the palate, you will find caramelized layers of Santa Rosa plum with youthful acidity leading to a perfectly balanced and dry finish.

Salmon, pork tenderloin and mushroom based pasta dishes would be a superb match with this flavorful Pinot Noir. For the cheese course, try Fontina or Manchego with dried fruit and almonds.

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.
