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

Nice crisp start, with a creamy mouthfeel. Mid palate is toasty and there are nice fruit notes.

I really wanted to like this wine. Cool looking bottle and you'll probably be the only one bringing it to a party. But for whatever reason, this wine tastes metallicy and soapy to me. Not good. And it's really not that smooth - and I don't want to hear anyone blaming it on the "tannins".. please.. it's just harsher than it should be for this pricey of a pinot. Disappointing.

This sparkling wine has a beautiful velvety mouth feel. Small tiny bubble that dance in your mouth without the harsh acidity that most California Sparkling wines have. You can truly hold it in your mouth for the airiness and delicate flavors that make you want more.

This is always one of Iron Horse's nicest sparklers. It seems softer, rounder, creamier and fruitier than the others - it certainly is relatively high in alcohol, yet is no less elegant. Just delicious in strawberry, lime, vanilla and lees flavors, with a clean, uplifting finish.

Maybe it's all marketing, but this does seem to be an ideal wedding toast bubbly. There's something for everyone. Despite being almost Pinot Noir, it's light and delicate, with a crisp elegance and a fine mousse, and that effervescent pleasure that only a fine bubbly provides.

Sleek and crisp, with fresh cherry and apple aromas and polished lemon, anise and creamy vanilla flavors, finishing on a vibrant mineral note. Drink now through 2014.

The Wedding Cuvée is one of Iron Horse's sweeter bubblies, but it's not a sweet wine. It's soft, creamy and delicious. Brimming with flavors of green apples, strawberries, brioche and pepper, it continues the winery's brilliant tradition of crafting some of the finest sparkling wines in California.

A touch of pink in the color and hints of fresh strawberries in the aroma show off the Pinot Noir in this wine (85 percent of the blend). It's soft and floral, with lasting, gentle red fruit flavors, for a pork roast.
