 *Top 100 Wines of 2012* Seamless from start to finish, both rich and elegantly sllek. Floral Asian pear and creamy almond aromas lead to complex and delicately balanced flavors of lively lemon and raspberry, plus ginger and spice. The finish lingers beautifully. Drink now through 2016.  (12/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Following a string of successful vintages, the new 2007 release of Iron Horse's small production Sonoma County Classic Vintage Brut continues the traditional blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay from their estate vineyards in the Green Valley AVA. Aged for four years on the lees, it shows aromas and flavors of tropical citrus, baked apple, and key lime, with savory pastry and hazelnut accents. This is full-bodied sparkler, with a rich mousse and creamy finish, perfect for enjoying with a variety of foods. Iron Horse recommends it with everything from lemon and herb seasoned roast chicken, to lobster mac & cheese or French fries with truffle salt. We also think this would be delicious with Asian-style dumplings or tempura-fried dishes. Only 1000 cases produced.

Country:

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.

Sub-Region:

California

- 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).
