Iron Horse is among the small number of American "sparkling" houses that almost never, never disappoints....and many would say the very best of them.

Since today is Easter Sunday, I guess my "Lent-imposed wine buying moratorim" is officially over.

This looks like a lovely (and delicious) way to welcome myself back.

Just back from the SoCal gathering and definitely considering this. Will reevaluate in the morning. Iron Horse is nearly an autobuy.

It sends off memory bells that say Champagne, except that the fruit is unmistakedly California, Sonoma County, Green Valley and most specifically Iron Horse! And, it is remarkably dry.

The Iron Horse Sparkling Brut Rose 2006 was one of my favorite Woot Wine purchases last year. I expect that the 2007 will be every bit as delicious. Have to go in for two!

A very Happy Easter to all!

This is one of a handful of rpm TOTAL AUTOBUYs. Joy and her brother make some of the very best sparkling wine in California - consistently one of the top 3 (but I repeat myself from every single offering....).

Anyone who wonders how this compares to other sparkling houses: none of the French houses in California other than Roederer in the Anderson Valley even come close. And Schramsberg is the only American-owned competition to take seriously (but they don't leave things on the yeasts as long as they used to ).

Failure to purchase the maximum you can afford will lead to severe disappointment and the loss of wonderful times with friends and the bubbly!

I could not conceive of an rpm Tour that did not include ending the day with Joy, Barrie, Audrey and Barry, and Laurence and their trusty and friendly staff on Ross Station Road, enjoying their friendship with great wine and perfectly chosen food accompaniment.

After much deliberation. It's out of my price range.

And yes I have had it at the winery and know what I am missing. Everyone else.....enjoy.

Auto buy in my household - wife loves the bubbles.

Hopefully I'll get to try some this time around - the last 2 pack I bought went mysteriously missing during delivery.

(Edit: no prob with FedEx - disappeared at my work.)

At least, that's why I'm justifying buying 2 - just to make sure

We absolutely love it when the RPM Tour comes to visit. But you don't have to wait. You are always welcome. By the way, this 2007 Brut Rose is aged almost five years...resulting in beautiful, tiny, elegant bubbles. As you know, longer aging leads to smaller bubbles.

When I come to the US to see my daughter, it will have been 3 years since the last time I saw her. What better way to celebrate than some Iron Horse bubbly! I am not a fan of Champagne usually (and I have tried a lot of them) but when I visited ddeuddeg and his lovely wife three years ago they opened a bottle of Iron Horse with appetizers and I really enjoyed it. Plus RPM said I would regret it if I didn't order this, so there you have it. One bottle to pop when I arrive and the other my daughter can share with her man for some special occasion.

I admit to Californian tastes, but I drink Iron Horse sparklers in preference to everything but Krug (which sets the standard IMHO), Bollinger R.D. (which Joy so beautifully emulates), Dom Ruinart (for vintages 1976 and before), the best vintages of Schramsberg (when they gave it 6 years on the yeasts) and the Anderson Valley Roederer Reserve in a good year.

This is regularly an autobuy for me. Unfortunately, I just bought a mixed case of Iron Horse two weeks ago, so I'm going to have to pass.

not that i didn't already know this is an autobuy.... for any newbies out there... Senor RPM does not make this type of recommendations but for some awesome juice.... auto buy for sure.

Special occasion, house pour; potayto, potahto. Seriously, read my signature and see how we feel about bubbly at our house.

We pour an Iron Horse bubbly with appetizers fairly often at our home. Glad you enjoyed it. Last month, at the Shakespeare 7 course benefit dinner we've been hosting annually for five years, we poured the '06 Brut Rosé, and it was a huge hit. One of the guests actually followed me into the kitchen to ask what they were drinking.
There's somewhere between 4 and 5 cases of Iron Horse bubbly in the cellar right now, partly due to our visit to the tasting room last month, where I learned that the Super Bowl package was still available, and I couldn't resist. Still, I'll have to find room for this.

I have been giving this some thought for a couple hours and your comments just may push me to buy. I too, do not enjoy bubbly but my wife does. With you saing you don't but you like this, I may give it a try.

Now that I am commenting I do have a question. Growing up I had an aunt that used to keep "Sparkling Burgundy" 9in her frig all the time. She would often let her son and myself "enjoy" a glass which at that time we did. Today, no matter where you go you can not find a product going by "Sparkling Burgundy". Can someone enlighten me? Thank you.

Sparkling Burgundy was a generic (almost always) California "burgundy" made from a variety of nondescript grapes (usually carignane, alicante bouschet, zinfandel, perhaps one of the Cab crosses like Ruby Cabernet or Centurion or Carnelian among the reds and often with some Chenin Blanc or Colombard or even Thompson Seedless white juice for volume) and made sparkling by the bulk (Charmat) process. I don't think I ever saw a "sparkling burgundy" that had even seen a Pinot Noir grape or even the California Gamay Beaujolais (which is a weak Pinot Noir clone...). Nothing particularly interestly in the way of wine flaovrs, it was almost always finished pretty sweet, maybe 3% residual sugar and often had a cloying taste like similarly inexpensive California bulk process "champagne".

You don't see it around anymore (similarly "Cold Duck" which was pretty much the same thing....) because people got tired of it - it didn't really go with any food, it tended to give even worse headache hangovers than cheap white sparklers, and you could get a better buzz for the buck with vodka mixed with all sorts of things.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! And you gave me a laugh as I had forgotten all about "Cold Duck". Never had it but I remember a lot of the people I knew in school drank that crap. Looking back, Boone's Farm probably displaced the duck. lol I can't believe that stuff is still around either. I guess if I went in the ally behind the stores instead of in the stores I would see it along with MD being turned up. As far a vodka buzz back then, when not using grain alcohol it was the base for PJ. All of the above not really fit for human consumption but it sure was consumed! lol
