Gloria Ferrer Carneros Pinot Noir 2000
The bouquet is filled with sweet red cherry, orange peel and toffee, with earthy notes adding to the complex aromatic profile. The palate texture is sleek and filled with raspberry, red currant and mocha flavors. A roasted oak note carries the wine through an extended finish.
Delicious with grilled salmon, rack of lamb, duck breast with dried cherries, wild mushroom ragout and slowroasted ribs.
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.
