Iron Horse Rose de Pinot Noir Usa California Sonoma County Russian River Valley Green Valley Pinot Noir S 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Rosé de Pinot Noir is perfectly lovely in the glass—a rose petal pink—made on purpose from the highest caliber estate grown, cool climate Pinot Noir.

Iron Horse Vineyards:
Drive past the berry farms on Ross Station Road, past the point where you can’t imagine there’s anything at the end of the road, crest the knoll and be awestruck as the view opens up to 350 acres covered with grape vines.

Drive past the berry farms on Ross Station Road, past the point where you can’t imagine there’s anything at the end of the road, crest the knoll and be awestruck as the view opens up to 350 acres covered with grape vines. Continue down the hill, across a small bridge, past the vegetable gardens, up a winding oak lined drive, between a row of alternating palm and olive trees and finally to the charming Iron Horse Winery, where you will enjoy a stunning view all the way across Sonoma County to Mt. St. Helena. The winery is best known for its Sparkling Wines. The Obama Adminstration is the fifth consecutive presidental administration to serve Iron Horse at the White House, a tradition that began in 1985 with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War. The Chardonnay is cool climate perfection. Pinot Noir is the winery’s rising star wine. Read less

Floral with sweet caramel accents to the Brie yeastiness on the nose with a subtle edge of toastiness, and candied apple undertones Floral on entry and quite sweet with lots of fruit, a bit of strawberry, lots of sweet pear, sweetness adds richness here but obscures the detail. Some fine strawberry suggestions emerge on the backend along with plenty of yeasty complexity. The finish is a pop of sweetness then cleansing acid, wrapped in a moderately creamy, rich mouthfeel. 89pts

Tasting Notes:

By nose: Watermelon and raspberry. By mouth: Cantaloupe, watermelon and lime. Pair with anything with heat (as in spicy) like Tlalpeño soup (a Tex-Mex specialty) and barbeque. Or simply enjoy as an aperitif on a beautiful summer day, outside, with some olives.

The 2009 Rosé de Pinot Noir is perfectly lovely in the glass—a rose petal pink—made on purpose from the highest caliber estate grown, cool climate Pinot Noir.
