Winemaker Notes

The 2005 Brut Rosé is the least "traditional" of Iron Horse Sparklings, both in terms of flavor and color. Made from predominantly Pinot Noir, the 2005 vintage is bright, bold and vibrant. By nose, raspberry, Crenshaw melon and hint of tangerine. In the mouth really ripe strawberry (yet dry), definitely a Pinot Noir. The perfect wine for any steak dinner, grilled tuna and all offal.

Wine Enthusiast
A strongly flavored blush, forward and bold in cherries, raspberries, vanilla, smoke and spices, and even suggestions of exotic mulberries. Dark in color, too. Made mostly from Pinot Noir, it can stand in for a red wine with filet mignon. Should develop in the bottle beyond 2011.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Brut Rose is an authentic rose with the grapes left on the skins to extract the deep rose color. A blend of 81% Pinot Noir and 19% Chardonnay aged 4 years on the yeast in the bottle, it boasts abundant aromas of framboise, wild strawberries, and a hint of pomegranate. Its medium deep rose color is one that is normally associated with some of the Moet-Chandon Dom Perignons, which tend to be a relatively deep rose color. Medium-bodied with loads of flavor and a crisp, dry finish, it should drink well for 3-4 years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Exotic and bold, yet retains an underlying elegance. Offers delicate strawberry and yeasty almond aromas and mature but lively cherry, red apple and spicy vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2013. 968 cases made.

Iron Horse, Russian River, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery
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.

Russian River

View all wine

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, The Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river which flows through the region. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, further from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
