2009 Iron Horse "Wedding Cuvée" Green Valley of Russian River Valley Brut

SKU #1141933 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This blend is a classic brut, of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Each variety plays its best hand, with Pinot Noir bringing rich, ripe raspberries, strawberries and tannins. The Chardonnay brings acidity and tantalizing notes of limes. With a silky, refined mousse, this bubbly is extremely attractive.  (12/2013)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The youngest and freshest sparkling wine in this portfolio is the 2009 Wedding Cuvee, a blend of 78% Pinot Noir and 22% Chardonnay aged three plus years. It reveals a slight reddish hue to its color, but I wouldn't call it rose. Wheat thin, grapefruit, biscuit and a strawberry-like note emerge from this crisp, refreshing, dry, vivacious sparkler with tiny, well-formed bubbles. It will appeal not only to newlyweds, but to all sparkling wine enthusiasts.  (12/2013)

K&L Notes

The Iron Horse "Wedding Cuvée" is the famed Sonoma County winery's Blanc de Noirs, made mostly from Pinot Noir. Always rich and expressive, the 2009 is no different. Always a favorite.

Additional Information:


United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
