GLORIA FERRER BLANC DE NOIR

On a picture perfect June day last year we paid a leisurely visit to Gloria Ferrer one of California’s true pacesetting sparkling wine houses. Established in 1986 and situated in Sonoma’s Carneros region, the firm was the first to plant Champagne clones of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the area. On that day we were treated to a tasting of Gloria Ferrer’s extensive line-up while enjoying a view of their expansive (300 plus acres) vineyard holdings from the winery’s Vista Terrace. Not surprisingly the firm’s seventy dollar Carneros Cuvee was the favorite, but it was this Blanc de Noirs that stole the show when value was factored into consideration. We didn’t know it at the time that the winery had a Blanc de Noirs with a newly designed label waiting in the wings. Nor did we imagine that in order speed the debut of this new label into the market place the Blanc de Noirs that so impressed us on the tasting room terrace was going be “closed out” at a laughably low price. Of course, stranger things have happened, but only very rarely so we urge you to take advantage this amazing opportunity while supplies last.

WINE SPECTATOR 88 POINTS - "Creamy raspberry and spicy red apple aromas lead to crisp yet succulent cherry and graham cracker flavors. One of the most consistent values in California sparkling wine. Drink now. 19,600 cases made." - Tim Fish 10/13.

We compared this bottling to the new label and found the wines to be remarkably similar. We gave this older edition a slight edge due its more fragrant bouquet and slightly creamer palate, attributes, no doubt, derived from its additional 18 months of aging on the cork.
