Iron Horse Vineyards White Blend Alexander Valley Cuvée R T Bar T Vineyard 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, sourdough toast followed by ripe pear, grapefruit, tangerine and Green Valley apples; in the mouth, creamy entry, with mid-palate touches of citrus, ripe pear and farm fresh apple fruit and a crisp, long finish.

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

Lots of raspberry in the nose and taste. Sharp acidity and more fruity than I expected.

Again, I'm a huge fan of the sparkling rose' and WOW, this one is incredible. At first, I thought it might have been the setting. The outdoor tasting room in Sebastopol feels like paradise. (A MUST on any wine tour!) But we brought a case home with us and it puts a smile on our face ever time we pop one open and indulge. Production is very limited... and I waited almost three years before their latest release of the Brut Rose'. And I think supplies are almost gone. Doh! TRY THIS!!!

The most distinctive and elegant of the Iron Horse cuves made from 100% Chardonnay this vintage is aged an average of 4 plus years on the yeast. It is ethereal - like drinking a cloud. It seems to effervesce away in your mouth and tastes like among other flavors a perfectly browned lightly buttered slice of sourdough toast. A natural on Sunday morning with a beautiful juicy melon. It is a sensational match with oysters smoked salmon caviar and pate. Ideal with roast chicken because it adds a clean lemony flavor to the dish.

On the nose: lime, hazelnut, toasted wheat and a touch of minerality. In the mouth:Tahitian lime, green apple with some minerality at the finish. A delicious match with sushi and sashimi, teriyaki chicken,and even shabu-shabu, lemony roast chicken, anything made with Thai spices; oysters, crab and shrimp. Also, considerdishes prepared with cream or white sauces.

By nose: Filbert nut, warm milk and baked apple. By mouth: baked apple, a richcreamy mouth-feel followed by a touch of lemon curd on the finish. 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 soursauces and anything prepared with exotic spices, including curries and chilies. Also great with a BLT.
