Lovers of the bubbly who are on a budget no longer have to suffer the indignation and humiliation of headache-inducing and vomit enhancing cheap imitation Champagne. GLORIA FERRER is here, there and everywhere and the very affordable Sonoma Brut is on the shelves to spread love across the universe. Scintillating, lively and fresh, the sparkling wine bursts with green apple and pear at its core, and finishes toasty with a hint of grass and garden herbs. This is all Paul McCartney with no John Lennon. Meaning, this is happy, bubbly stuff without any hard edge or cynicism. Beautifully straw-gold in color, it’s for those times in life where all you want is sunny, no grey skies. Should your troubles and worries creep in as you indulge in a glassful of this wine, it will whisper to you: “Let it be.” –J.M.
