N/V Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noirs
I was debating opening this for New Years but opted to pick up a half bottle of a genuine Champagne for midnight instead. We paid around $19 for this. The last tasting we attended had an excellent Gloria Ferrer Pinot Noir so I figured this would be worth a shot.
The palate is a bit toasty and the main fruit I get is red apples with a hint of raspberry.
The finish is more of the same, lots of toast and red apple. I’m even getting a bit of a flavor I’ve never had in wine before--sassafras/root beer.
Overall, an enjoyable sparkling wine with some nice depth, reasonably priced and recommended.
