Iron Horse Vineyards Champagne Blend Green Valley Brut Ld 2000

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nicely perfumed with white floral notes, heather, mineral and apple fruit notes. In the mouth this shows significant acids and a very moderate dosage that allows the fine mousse and nicely developed, citrussy fruits to dominate the mid-palate. Delicate and bright with cleansing acids on the finish this shows good poise. 91pts

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
