Iron Horse Vineyards Pinot Noir Green Valley Estate Bottled 2006
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.
Light style pinot with strawberry and red cherry. Light tannins with medium finish.
A nice wine with lots of dark fruit and spice, hints of rose petal, cherry and strawberry...rich flavors of chocolate. Wonderful, lingering finish.
Four and a half glasses

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.
