Wine Review: Gloria Ferrer is an unsung hero in the domestic sparkling wine scene. They regularly produce high-class wines for half the price of the big boys out of Champagne. The typical upfront fruit found in most California wines is not lost here. Displaying caramel, white peaches, wet stone, pears, and hints of toasted bread. This blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is as good as it gets. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: The Sonoma Brut has been carefully crafted entirely from hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Delicate pear and floral notes backed by toasty almond. On the palate, one finds lively citrus, toast and apple flavors overlaid with persistent effervescence, a creamy mid-palate and toasty finish. A tremendously versatile wine that is equally delicious with shellfish, crab, roasted chicken or sushi.
