Iron Horse Vineyards Champagne Blend Green Valley Joy! NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Joy! is produced only in magnums and aged over 10 years on the yeast in the bottle. A gorgeous combination of elegance, refinement and power. Joy! began as a happy mistake when we uncovered a cache of long forgotten, unlabled magnums from various vineyards going back 10 to 15 years. The first vintage of Joy! created “on purpose” is from 2006, which will be disgorged in 2021

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
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

On the nose toasted hazelnut, orange marmalade, ripe red apple; in the mouth, ripe red apple followed by an apricot finish. Serve with anything you’d serve on New Year’s Eve, Smoked Salmon, Caviar on Baby Potatoes and Sour Cream, Pâté de Foie Gras, Black Eyed Peas, Ham, Crab or a late night Mushroom Omelet for two.
