Editorial Reviews for Iron Horse Vineyards Wedding Cuvee Green Valley Sonoma County
Dark, a bit sour fruited and citrussy on the nose then turning a little sweet and earthy with hints of Asian pear, wild cherry and dried rose petals. A very fine mousse greets the palate along with a hint of dill right up front. Elegant on the palate with lovely herbal shadings to the fruit which is a bit front loaded with fruit then turns nuanced and complex on the mid-palate, with nice acids that drive the moderately chaly finish, and flavors of cranberries. This is nicely rich with just a touch of spice, and a nice juxtaposition of fruit and chalky minerality. 91pts
Four and a half glasses
Just a fantastic California sparkler. Tight bubbles, somewhat dry on the sides but a bit of residual on the back of the tongue. This is pale pink in color with a bit of yeast on the nose.
This stop at J Wine was part of a Russian River trip! Made with grapes sourced from 14 different vineyard, this was well balanced with fruity notes of dark cherry, leather and spices. Although well made, this did not stand out. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/russian-river-j-vineyards-and-winery.html

Rich and creamy, like pure strawberries and cream, this is without doubt the most romantic of our Sparklings. It is dangerously easy to drink. A favorite for many, Iron Horse is probably best known for this cuvee.
