Wine Review: This pale rose gold colored Blanc de Noirs Rose from Gloria Ferrer is not an obvious Rose. It displays active moderate sized bubbles. It opens with a pear and strawberry bouquet with hints of bread dough. It has nice palate coverage. It is medium minus bodied with medium minus acidity. There is a touch of sweetness up front with flavors of honeyed pear and allspice along with hints of dried cherry and a touch of granite. While not elegant or refined, this sparkler is a very respectable crowd pleaser. It is easy to sip and would pair well with appetizers at your holiday parties. - Rick

Winemaker Notes: The Sparkling Pinot Noir opens with aromas of bright strawberry and black cherry with subtle vanilla highlights. Creamy cherry, lemon, and cola flavors, combined with a lush palate and lively bubbles, lead into a persistent finish. The juicy strawberry, cherry, cola, and vanilla flavors in the Blanc de Noirs Rosé, pair well with dishes that have a natural sweetness. The sweetness of barbeque flavors will also provide the complementary pairing magic, as will fruit components; and the lush fruit in the wine will balance spice.
