Gloria Ferrer
Varietal: Sparkling
Vintage: 2010
Country of Origin: United States
Appellation: Carneros
Retail Price: $80.00

Tasting Notes: A combination of pinot noir and chardonnay, the wine sat in the bottle, after its secondary fermentation, for over eight years. This provides a level of complexity and elegance rarely seen in a domestic sparkling wine. Whether you have a special occasion to celebrate (maybe when the kids return to school?), or not, you owe yourself the opportunity to open a bottle. Enjoying this superb bottle will be a celebration, all by itself.
