Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sparkling Wine from Gloria Ferrer displays lots of tiny streaming bubbles. It opens with a faint pink grapefruit and lemon verbena bouquet with hints of wet granite and honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, clean, creamy, and graceful. The flavor profile is croissant and baked apple blend with notes of chalky minerality and saline. We also detected hints of honey, toast, and touch of spice. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair Sparkling Wine with coquilles St. Jacques or just sip it. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Showcasing the beautiful complexity that comes from extended tirage aging, our 2013 Carneros Cuvée proves its seriousness from the first sip. The weight and structure on the palate are undeniable and are wonderfully complemented by shimmering vibrancy and freshness. Zesty citrus notes dance across the palate with notes of red apple and warm cinnamon spice. A remarkable wine that personifies the excellence and elegance of our Carneros estate vineyards.
