Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay 2003
from Russian River, California
2003 is a excellent vintage in terms of quality and flavor intensity. It is also a special anniversary vintage, marking our 25th year of making Estate Chardonnay at Iron Horse. It beautifully expresses the bright, focused, clean, sweet-tart flavors of cool, foggy Green Valley. It is beautifully balanced, imparting a delightful "leesy", toasty, perfectly integrated barrel character that doesn't overwhelm the fruit. The texture is soft, smooth, silky and sensuous. The finish, long and lingering.
Enjoy with corn soup, rainbow trout, sole, halibut with mushrooms and asparagus, salmon, steamed lobster, lemon roast chicken served with jasmine rice, veal chop, anything with a cream sauce, goat cheese, walnuts - in other words, as often as possible.

Nice crisp and tart/tangy Chardonnay ... and as described the flavor actually does linger nicely in the mouth. I actually tried it with Tex-Mex (corn dish, corn tortillas, enchiladas etc.) and it was quite nice. It intensifies any spicyness of the dish without loosing its own clean flavors. I can see where this would also be a great wine with fish or a scampi ...
