Iron Horse Vineyards "Russian Cuvée" Green Valley 2006
Russian Cuve commemorates the style of sparklings we made for the historic Reagan - Gorbachev summit meetings, which ended the Cold War. Although "sweeter than the Classic vintage Brut, the higher dosage doesnt come across as sweet, but more floral and does make the wine richer and fuller.
External Reviews for Iron Horse Vineyards "Russian Cuvée" Green Valley
Wine tasting NotesThis is a young, bright, exciting, fresh, pure expression of Green Valley fruit from a superlative vintage. It has a very, very pretty nose. The flavors are Gravenstein apple and complex citrus with a hint of lime, which is part of the Iron Horse signature along with a distinct minerality. It is ultra smooth and surprisingly creamy. Cinnamon and nutmeg contribute to dreamy associations with creme brulee.
Wine Enthusiast ReviewThis has long been one of the best Sauvignon Blanc-Viognier blends in California, and the '06 continues that tradition. Coming from a cool vintage, it's very dry and racy, with a scour of acidity and stony, minerally flavors, with touches of citrus blossom and wildflower. No, it's not a fruit bomb, but it's a sleek, elegant wine, in the European tradition.Wine Tasting NotesThis is a unique blend of Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Viognier. The grapes come from the T-bar-T vineyard in the Alexander Valley. The perfume of the smells exactly like the vineyard smells in spring, when all the white flowers are in bloom. This is our last vintage of producing this special, proprietary white.
Food Pairings for Iron Horse Vineyards "Russian Cuvée" Green Valley
By nose: Caramel, vanilla and warm milk. By mouth: mandarin orange, custard and a rich creamy mouth feel. A perfect aperitif by itself and for a great cocktail, simply add a few pomegranate seeds to the flute. Pair with rich foods such a foie gras, as well as sweet and sour sauces and anything prepared with exotic spices, including curries and chilies. Also great with a BLT.
