Iron Horse Vineyards Pinot Noir Green Valley Estate Rosé de Pinot Noir NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Joy! is a new Sparkling Cuvée from Iron Horse, produced only in magnums and aged 10 to 15 years on the yeast in the bottle. It is a gorgeous combination of elegance, refinement and power. Joy! is "non-vintage" or "multi-vintage" in the sense of representing a range of years. Production is very limited. We currently have 1,200 magnums sufficiently aged. Younger vintages will continue to age at Iron Horse until they reach this quality level. Food Pairing The perfect, most glamorous, joyful aperitif. Pairs beautifully with freshly shucked oysters, thinkly sliced smoked salmon; farm fresh radishes with rich, creamy butter and fleur de sel sea salt, pate. Accolades Joy! has been awarded a near perfect 98 points by Wine Enthusiast , 92 points by Wine & Spirits and named one of the Top 100 Wines of the Year by WE and The San Francisco Chronicle. It is a finalist for Sunset Magazine's Annual Wine Awards. Jon Bonne in the San Francisco Chronicle says “… here's a wine that creates its own special occasion simply in the uncorking.” Total production: 50 cases.

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
