Iron Horse Winter's Cuvee 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

By nose: Caramelized sugar, toast and ‘muscat’. By mouth: Apple pie, nutmeg and vanilla. Pairs beautifully with popcorn drizzled with truffle oil, traditional dinner party hor d’oeuvres, white pizza with mushrooms, roasted pork loin with apples, roast bird with dried apricots in the stuffing, chicken or lamb tangines.

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

Same base, a hint of brandy added 10gr With a sweet nuttiness on the nose, then floral aromas and notes of dried peaches, melon and pear all topped with touch of cotton candy makes for a fabulous nose. Love the balance of freshness, sweetness and aged character here. Nuanced, bright, clear and tense in the mouth in a very brisk and clean style that highlights the chalk and mineral flavors on the palate while leaving layers of hazelnuts and peach to the long finish. This is a little large scaled but shows real finesse in the mouth. A gorgeous wine. 92pts
