External Reviews for Iron Horse Vineyards White Blend Alexander Valley Cuvée R T Bar T Vineyard
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.
The wine smells exactly like the vineyard in spring when the Buckeye and Manzanitas are in bloom, which impart a white blossom honeyed aroma, with fresh baby grass and wild iris underfoot. The current vintage was awarded 90 points from Wine Enthusiast.
