2012 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100: #74

"Seamless from start to finish, both rich and elegantly sleek. 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. 1,000 cases made." (WS)

Winery Notes:
The most traditional of the Iron Horse Sparklings. A "classic" 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, aged an average of four years on the yeast in the bottle. Wonderfully rich and creamy, it sends all kinds of memory bells that say "champagne", though the fruit is unmistakably Green Valley of Russian River Valley. It is vintage quality in every sense of the word.

Food Pairing
Classic Vintage Brut is a food lover that shines in the presence of all things spicy, salty or fried. Its classi partner would be a perfectly roasted chicken infused with flavors of fresh thyme and Meyer lemon. Eggs Benedict, lobster mac and cheese or French fries with truffle salt pair beautifully, while spicy tuna tartare makes for a sublime hors d'oeuvre.
