Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Classic Vintage Brut is 'brut' level dry and vintage in every sense of the word. Rich, creamy and delicious with precise, pinpoint bubbles. Inviting aromas of rising dough, orange marmalade and baked apple on the nose while the palate is rich with ripe red apple, mandarin orange and hazelnut flavors.

This is a beautiful sparkling with crispy pomme frittes with sea salt and black pepper, truffle popcorn, avocado and baby shrimp salad, bacon and watercress sandwich, wild mushroom tart, spaghetti with cream, parmesan and crispy onions, roast duckling with citrus.

Wine & Spirits
The 2010 vintage on the North Coast was mostly cool, until a blistering late August heat wave created sunburn challenges and uneven ripening in many vineyards. At the cool Iron Horse estate in Green Valley, the effects were less drastic. In fact, winemaker David Munksgard's pinot-dominant Classic Vintage Brut is remarkably pure in 2010, the flavors intense and red-fruited at first, slowly receding in a delicate mousse that lasts on cool scents of chamomile, lemon blossoms and biscuits. The acidity is bright, the texture gentle, evoking the ocean breezes and undulating hills of Green Valley.

Wine Enthusiast
A majority of Pinot Noir in this blend doesn’t overshadow the Chardonnay’s sentiments of baked apple, hazelnut and crème brûlée. Warm and savory, the mousse is also dry, crisp and buoyant, balanced and elegant in the end, making for a complete wine with a lengthy finish.

The 2010 Iron Horse Classic Vintage Brut Sparkling wine is elegant and intricate. Drawn from some of the California's finest cool growing regions, this wine measures up to many of Champagne's top efforts. It is fresh with green apple flavors, zesty on the palate, and full of life in the finish. The crisp finish makes it a delicious treat with fresh salmon sashimi. (Tasted: October 10, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Supple and richly styled, with aromas of tart apple and spiced hazelnut, followed by Meyer lemon, brioche and zesty cinnamon notes.

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.

Situated on the foggier and colder western edge of the Russian River Valley, almost abutting the Sonoma Coast appellation, Green Valley is one of California’s most reputable Chardonnay and Pinot noir producing regions. It is also a wonderful source of sparkling wines made from these varieties.

Goldridge soils abound throughout the Green Valley appellation. This fine, dark, sandy loam and fractured sandstone is derived from the remains of ancient inland seabeds dating back three to five million years. It is valuable for high quality grape growing because of its excellent drainage and low fertility.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
