The most traditional of the Iron Horse Sparklings. A classy blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, aged an average of four years on the yeast in the bottle. Wonderfully rich and creamy, it sends all kinds of memory bells that say "champagne", though the fruit is unmistakably Green Valley of Russian River Valley. It is vintage quality in every sense of the word.
The ultimate food wine. Goes with everything--sushi, fried, salty and spicy dishes, rich chicken soup (guaranteed to cure whatever ails you), with popcorn on movie night. The best no-fat dessert is Brut and fruit - a handful of fresh berries in summer or sliced mango in winter.
"Lovely floral aromas lead to a complex yet elegant wine, offering
crisp apple and citrus fruit, with notes of pear, fresh almond and
yeasty brown spices. Drink now through 2014"
"Mineral tension cuts through the generous, creamy texture of this wine l;asts and lasts, the complex finish showing toasty richness and impressive length. Delicious with Nantucket Bay Scallops or other fruits de mer."
