More full-bodied than the winery’s brut, this Pinot Noir-based bubbly also is richer. It’s just beautiful in raspberries and strawberries, with brighter touches of lime, and although the wine has a honeyed sweetness, it’s zesty acidity makes it finish dry.

This bubbly charms with cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of limes and vanilla. It’s nice and smooth in the mouth, with a creamy mousse. Showing real finesse and elegance, this sparkler will be delicious with raw tuna.

Fun and festive, with floral raspberry and graham cracker aromas leading to crisp and succulent lemon and strawberry flavors. A reliable value in California bubbly. Drink now.

Almost exclusively Pinot Noir, this is a deeply colored, full-bodied wine, rich and crisp in strawberries, lees and vanilla. A touch of Chardonnay adds a refreshing note of lime. Delicious and easy to like, especially at this price.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir; cherry fruit, citrus, and a toasty component give this wine complexity; easy to drink with beautiful acidity and fruit flavor mix.

There’s a lot going on for the price in this honeyed, rich blush wine. Pinot Noir gives hints of strawberries, while Chardonnay contributes limes and oranges. The result is a smooth, crisp sipper for drinking now.

Bright pink color; big, fruity nose; lush; a super value.

Pale salmon colored. Medium body, acid and fruit. Apples, berries, peaches. Good weight with focused but delicate berry flavors in a crisp, spicy structure that lasts.

Fun and festive, with a delicate pink hue, floral strawberry and vanilla aromas and crisp, delicate citrus, spice and cherry flavors. Drink now.

Medium straw with subtle bronze highlights. Moderately full-bodied. Moderately extracted. Dough, citrus fruits, minerals. Rich bread aromas lead a focused bright citrus-flavored palate with a steely backbone that give this a solid structure. Quite assertive on the palate. Full fine-beaded carbonation.

Vibrant and loaded with fruit, but still crisp, showing fresh raspberry and citrus aromas, with zesty flavors of strawberry, graham cracker and spice. Drink now.

Very pale with strawberry hues; cranberry, dried cherry and strawberry laced with minerality; plenty of mid-sized bubbles; soft vanilla and green apple lead to seductive strawberry tones on the finish.

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.

Exhibiting pretty berry and wild cherry flavors with a dash of mango, this fruit-driven style has richness and depth. Drinks well now.

A touch of fruit sweetness makes this a gentle, rosy sparkler. It finishes clean and bright. For toasts.

Jammed with bright and festive raspberry and ripe lemon flavors, this offers fresh, easygoing notes of pear, spice and brioche. Drink now.

Medium straw hue. Generous aromas of peach and apple follow through well on a moderately full-bodied palate with broad, fruity flavors lingering in the finish. The upfront fruit of Pinot Noir comes through strongly on this Brut.

Fairly supple, with ripe cherry, lemon and grapefruit flavors. Delivers pretty toast, orange peel and spice on the finish. Quite nice. Drink now through 2001.

Made largely from Pinot Noir, this bubbly has rich flavors of cherries, yeast and smoke. Ten percent Chardonnay adds a lemony brightness. Drink now.

87 pts. : November 30, 2003

Lively ginger and spice flavors pick up lean, firm pear and apple scents, with a touch of black cherry and Pinot Noir scents. Gains richness, turning creamy, with a whiff of vanilla. Drink now through 2007.

What a pretty color, a pale straw with glints of rosy peach skin, and a suggestion of fresh strawberries and cream on the nose. Drinks smooth and rich, a lively, full-bodied sparkler with firm acidity.

Wins points for its understated elegance and subtle hints of ripe cherry, rose petal, spice and citrus notes. The finish is refreshingly clean and offers enough complexity to tempt you for a second glass. Drink now.

Medium-light yellow with a blush of salmon pink; persistent stream of small bubbles; forward, strawberry and green apple aroma; full body; toasty, creamy, cherry and ripe pear flavors with hints of cola; persistent mousse; crisp, clean finish; lingering aftertaste.

Delicate, with fresh rose petal, strawberry and cherry scents that carry over to the palate. Clean and refreshing. Drink now.

87 pts. : December 31, 2006

Pinot Noir has given this bubbly a full-bodied richness that smacks of red cherries. It’s a dry wine, a little sharp and angular, but maintains a distinguished creamy mouthfeel.

A great big waft of cherries erupts from the glass, signaling a fruity wine, which indeed this bubbly is. Its full-bodied flavors have a nice yeasty, doughy quality, and the wine is fully dry, although somewhat rough in texture.

Fun and altogether fruity, with raspberry, vanilla and spice aromas and, while the flavors are a bit sweet, it’s such an appealing package that it hardly matters. Drink now.

Salmon color. Showing the prototypical cherryish fruitiness of good California Blanc de Noirs in the nose along with light toasty tones, the wine has a foamy mousse at entry and is crisp and clean on the palate. This is an affable and tasty wine with a soft, sweet finish.

Long time Sonoma sparkling wine producer Gloria Ferrer uses predominantly Pinot Noir grapes for this berry-scented, white sparkling wine.

: June 1, 2008

I always love that persistent hint of strawberry fruit that always shows through this mostly (90%) Pinot Noir presentation. There is that clean and definitive strawberry and black cherry fruit that is hidden in the Bruts, along with some vanilla and cola that gives the wine a bit more depth, enough to handle the picnic or the crab feed. Your choice, either one works nicely.
