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
A festive bubbly, with floral cherry and lemon aromas and succulent cherry, red apple and spice flavors. Drink now.
Like Champagne, this sparkling wine is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Rich and creamy with a long, lovely finish. A great alternative to Champagne.
A relatively high proportion of Chardonnay in this blend gives the wine a nice delicacy and elegance. A touch of yeastiness blends well with the fruit. Always one of the best buys from California.
What a pretty color: off-gold with a trace of copper. Smells fresh and clean, with bread dough, vanilla, and a whiff of smoky raspberry. Full-bodied, with succulent raspberry and cherry flavors; dry and spicy. Finishes lively and a little rough. 92% Pinot Noir and 8% Chardonnay. Best Buy.
Gloria Ferrer Brut and all other wine from Gloria Ferrer are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
This bubbly is rich in cherry and raspberry fruit, in addition to the usual sparkling wine notes of bread dough and smoke. It’s a little sweet and scoury on the palate, but a fairly polished sparkler for this price.
The Sonoma Brut has been carefully crafted entirely from hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Over forty different selections of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are planted on our 340-acre estate in the Sonoma Carneros district. It is this viticultural diversity that allows us to consistently produce cuvées with complexity and clear fruit expression. The Brut is dominated by Pinot Noir, a stylistic decision enabling the complex aromatic and palate profile that this red-skinned grape contributes to Brut cuvées. • Whole cluster pressed to avoid bitter compounds • 20 to 25% of the premiere taille or first press, is used to add richness and structure to the base blend. • Juice is naturally settled overnight (débourbage) to encourage a clean fermentation. • Proprietary yeast used for the secondary bottle fermentation provides a delicate house signature from year to year. • The cuvée is a blend of 20 different base wines fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. • The wine spent a year and a-half en tirage (on the yeast). • Small and numerous bubbles are encouraged by autolysis, the process by which yeast imparts complexity and a yeasty character to the wine. The autolysis particles provide sites for the formation of the mousse. • After disgorgement, the wine was balanced with a dosage of 1.3 g/100 mls.
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.
