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

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.

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.
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.
