This is Iron Horse's Blanc de Noirs, made from predominately Pinot Noir. It has a beautiful, pale-peach hue. Rich and creamy, like pure strawberries and cream, this is without doubt the most romantic of Sparklings. It is dangerously easy to drink. A favorite for many, Iron Horse is probably best known for this cuvée.
Marries perfectly with frisee salad with diced bacon and a Pinot Noir vinaigrette, Chinese chicken salad, scrambled eggs and caviar, rock shrimp and potato frittata, mushroom dishes such as a grilled Portobello sandwich or wild mushroom risotto, poached salmon - hot or cold, and best of all, chocolate dipped strawberries.
"The Wedding Cuvée is one of Iron Horse’s sweeter bubblies, but it’s not a sweet wine. It’s soft, creamy and delicious. Brimming with flavors of green apples, strawberries, brioche and pepper, it continues the winery’s brilliant tradition of crafting some of the finest sparkling wines in California."
"Pale salmon hue. Light chalk and ginger aromas. Crisp flavors of apple, pecan and brown spice. Drying minerals couple with a lingering orange peel note on the finish."
The Wine News
"Floral, crisp and elegant, with Asian pear, yeasty and spicy aromas and complex and layered apple, cinnamon and flinty flavors that linger. Drink now. 6,000 cases made."
We first tried this in a Woot! offer and fell in love with it. Great price and taste. We get this a few times a year and really enjoy drinking it.
