Food Pairings for Gloria Ferrer Champagne Blend Sonoma County Sonoma Brut
Peach and apricot nose, with round fruits bigger on the palate and a hint of sweetness. Good!
A little different then its French cousin. Under a great amount of pressure. Sparkling wine with the smell remnant of champagne. Sweet taste with hints of peach that transitions into a dry and delightful aftertaste. Delicate and a wonderful, but frugal, way to celebrate any occasion. Great deal for the money.
Lively, vibrant mousse. Nose of green apples, mineral, and biscuit. Dry but not overly so with a nice acidic edge. Prominent flavors of tart green apples. Crisp and refreshing. 3.5+ out of 5.
Fairly standard sparkling wine - toasty, bread notes on nose with some dried fruit. Palate is similar with also some dired fruit and very subtle tones you might find in sherry. A little more interesting than the blanc de noirs.
90 points Wine Spectator's Sips and Tips: "A delicious mouthful of bubbly. Smooth, rich and creamy, showing layers of black cherry, vanilla and ginger, with a hint of lemon drop. Finishes with a long, refreshing aftertaste of mineral and fruit. Drink now. 93,500 cases made. From California."

I think this Brut is a phenomenal value. I regularly buy it for "toasting" occasions and it never disappoints!
Good Value. Citrus flavors, smooth finish.
External Reviews for Gloria Ferrer Champagne Blend Sonoma County Sonoma Brut
Though the most basic of the Gloria Ferrer Méthode Champenoise sparkling wines, this wine maintains a clear and crisp profile, with freshly-baled hay, nice hints of pear and a bit of the almond from the yeast.
Fresh, crisp, and fruit-forward, with green apple and pear aromas and lively lemon and mineral flavors. Drink now through 2012.
Succulent aromas of ripe apple, caramel and spice lead to soft, slightly sweet cherry, pear and cinnamon toast flavors. Drink now through 2013.
Hints of strawberry and almond on nose. Pretty wine. Delicate berries, complex.
Showing a richer and weightier style than is the norm among this years’ sparklers, this “winey” effort makes obvious its larger percentage of Pinot Noir. Suggesting roasted grains, cream and a touch of graham cracker in its moderately yeasty aromas, the wine is broad and fruity in flavor with an ample measure of yeast. If a bit too heavy and slightly too coarse to win wholesale endorsement as an aperitif, it is eminently suited to service with poultry or richer foods.
Incredibly frothy, persistent mousse. Fresh, delicate, lemon-citrusy character with herbal tones. Nicely balanced on the tart, food- oriented side. Creamy texture.
Bright straw with golden cast. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Lemon, lime, smoky yeasts. Well judged toasty nuanceds on the aromas. Brash and fruity with juicy acids persisting through the finish. Lively fine-beaded carbonation.
