Gloria Ferrer 2004 Royal Cuvee

SPARKLING

Gloria Ferrer 2004 Royal Cuvée
Carneros, California

Make your mother feel like a queen with this sparkling wine, whose first vintage was served to the King and Queen of Spain when they visited California in 1987. The 2004 vintage is a blend of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay grown on the winery’s estate vineyard in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. On the nose, it offers a bouquet of peach and toast. In the mouth, it reveals apple and pear flavors with a hint of butterscotch.

Wilson Creek Peach Bellini

SPARKLING

Wilson Creek Peach Bellini
Temecula Valley, California

Unlike the original Bellini served in Venice, Wilson Creek Peach Bellini is not a mixture of Prosecco and peach purée. Instead, it is made from their delicious Almond Champagne and natural peach flavors. The result is sweet, but not cloying, with a crisp, expansive mouthfeel.

J. Lohr Estates 2009 South Ridge Syrah

A small amount of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel are added to the Syrah used in this blend. Because much of the fruit was grown on south-facing slopes, the resulting wine boasts riper, more concentrated fruit flavors. Featuring aromas of blueberry, black tea and brown sugar complemented by flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate, this complex wine can be enjoyed now or uncorked in five years time.
