Winemaker Notes

Winemakers Tasting Notes This wine is one of two Cabernet based blends from T-bar T in 1998 Of all the possible combinations and premutations, two distinct wines emerged as the best of the vintage. Blend 1 shows predominately sweet ripe fruit, intense aromas and flavors. Natural Farming Philosophy The creek beds and acres of wild blackberries that intersect the vineyard have been allowed to revert to their natural state, hosting an ecological balance between good and bad insects, allowing for minimal intervention. Vineyard Specifics: The grapes for this wine come from Winemaker Forrest Tancer's family estate in the northeast corner of the Alexander Valley. The property sits in the foothills rising to an elevation of 800 feet. It is very steep and rugged, with great outcroppings of serpentine, California's state rock. Out of 475 acres, only 60 are planted to vine. Average Age of the Vines 15 years average Harvest Dates: October 7 through October 28, 1998 Winemaking Techniques: Hand harvested grapes were destemmed into stainless steel tanks where they were cold soaked for seven days prior to fermentation. Before fermentation was complete, the new wine aws pressed gently from the skins and transfered to French and American oak barrels. The fermentation went to completion in these barrels, where the wine was aged until blending and bottling. Barrels Combination French and American Oak Blend 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot

A pioneer in the Green Valley appellation within the Russian River area of Sonoma County, the Iron Horse family is building a legacy of prestige sparkling wines and elegant estate-bottled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir within a "holistic" environment of natural balance, cultivation and love of the land.

Iron Horse is best known for its Sparkling Wines, which have been served at the White House since 1985, beginning with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War, at the White House Millennium celebrations ushering in the new century, and at the White House dinner honoring the Pope.

Their Chardonnay is considered a signature wine for the cool, foggy Green Valley region. Pinot Noir is the winery's rising star wine.

Iron Horse has been named an American icon in a reference book published by Random House called "Icons of the American Market Place". Listed in alphabetical order, Iron Horse takes its place between iPod and Jack Daniel’s, validating Iron Horse’s reputation as a brand backed by pride, passion and quality.

The Iron Horse name came from a train that cut across the property in the 1890s. The logo, the rampant horse on a weather vane, came from a 19th century weathervane found while clearing away the rubble to build the winery.
