Extra Brut Accolades
"Lots to like in this lovely sparkling wine, aged on the yeast for many years before being released. It shows a doughy toastiness to the sunny, ripe raspberries, lime and vanilla, and is silky in texture. Elegant and upscale, it's at its best now, so drink up."
- Wine Enthusiast, December 2012
"Sleek and finely focused, featuring baked apple and white chocolate aromas, with rich, layered flavors of Asian pear accented by hints of raspberry, spice and yeasty cinnamon roll. Offers a crisp, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2016."

Top Ten American Sparkling Wines
"Gloria Ferrer only produced 800 cases of this excellent vintage sparkler, available exclusively to their wine club members and tasting room visitors. Composed of 67 per cent Pinot Noir and 33 per cent Chardonnay, it is well-balanced and dry. On the palate, the wine displays apple, lemon and custard flavors that linger on the elegant finish."
