Iron Horse Vineyards Pinot Noir Green Valley Estate Bottled 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The most distinctive character of Iron Horse Pinot Noir is that it goes beyond the bright fruit character typical of the Russian River area, showing deeper, earthier flavors that are special to Green Valley. This is a very expressive, stylish wine. It has extraordinary depth of character and yet the weight and texture of the wine are so light and silky, it just glides across the palette.

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

A nice wine with lots of dark fruit and spice, hints of rose petal, cherry and strawberry...rich flavors of chocolate. Wonderful, lingering finish.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 92Right up there with the wonderful '05, Iron Horse's '06 shows the brisk acids and long hangtime flavors the wine is known for. The cherry, currant, licorice, root beer and Provenal herb flavors are rich and savory, leading to a complex finish.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91The work of the new vineyard team at Iron Horse is beginning to show in its Pinot Noir, if this rich and satisfying 2006 is any indication. Careful growing and selection are evident in the vigor of the wine, its dark fruit edging toward a resinous ripeness, with a structure that keeps it firm and savory. Decant is for roast salmon finished with red wine and mushrooms.Wine Tasting NotesThe most distinctive character of Iron Horse Pinot Noir is that it goes beyond the bright fruit character typical of the Russian River area, showing deeper, more earthy flavors that are special to Green Valley. This is a very expressive, stylish, elegant wine. It has extraordinary depth of flavor.
