    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 Brut Rosé is the least "traditional" of Iron Horse Sparklings, both in terms of flavor and color. Made from predominantly Pinot Noir, the 2005 vintage is bright, bold and vibrant. By nose, raspberry, Crenshaw melon and hint of tangerine. In the mouth really ripe strawberry (yet dry), definitely a Pinot Noir. The perfect wine for any steak dinner, grilled tuna and all offal.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A strongly flavored blush, forward and bold in cherries, raspberries, vanilla, smoke and spices, and even suggestions of exotic mulberries. Dark in color, too. Made mostly from Pinot Noir, it can stand in for a red wine with filet mignon. Should develop in the bottle beyond 2011.

    Exotic and bold, yet retains an underlying elegance. Offers delicate strawberry and yeasty almond aromas and mature but lively cherry, red apple and spicy vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2013. 968 cases made.

    The 2005 Brut Rose is an authentic rose with the grapes left on the skins to extract the deep rose color. A blend of 81% Pinot Noir and 19% Chardonnay aged 4 years on the yeast in the bottle, it boasts abundant aromas of framboise, wild strawberries, and a hint of pomegranate. Its medium deep rose color is one that is normally associated with some of the Moet-Chandon Dom Perignons, which tend to be a relatively deep rose color. Medium-bodied with loads of flavor and a crisp, dry finish, it should drink well for 3-4 years.
