I LOVE all of these! There's not a bad one in the bunch. Auto buy if you like sparkling wines.

SIWBM 2.5 months and going strong. And this offer of three bottles of excellent sparkling wine ain't gonna do it. It's going to take something mightier to break it. Nice try WD!!!!!

Don't think I've been able to say this about a mixed order before, but we've had all of these, and they're all wonderful sparklers. Iron Horse is our house pour with appetizers whenever we have dinner company, always with rave reviews. At better than wine club prices, this is a definite autobuy for anyone who can find room.

Find your way to Buffalo, and you'll be welcomed with open arms, the way we treat all fellow wooters.

Autobuy to the limit of your purse and capacity. Hell, find the money, find the room: you won't need the room that long because you'll love it and drink it!

Good Morning from Green Valley! Just want to say how excited we are to welcome back the RPM Tour next month. We are planning a delicious tasting and dinner in my parents' garden. These three bubblies will certainly get you in the mood!

About the same price point as the IH deal on RLL that WD had up a couple months back, though some different bottles. Of course, I'm sure wine.woot has much better sales numbers, and doesn't charge me tax, and is cheaper shipping.

Welcome back! Or, can you let me in on how you get the no sales tax like it used to be?

Wish I could afford this.

Thanks for all your kind comments. Right now we a busy putting the 2013 vintage cuvees into bottle for their bottle fermentation. The cellar is brimming with fruity and yeasty scents. Wish I could capture that in a POST.

Actually, it wasn't that there was no sales tax; it was just built into the price, instead of being shown separately. You might as well wish for another wine glut that gave rise to the ridiculously good deals 6 years ago, that made today's decent deals seem not so good. I still love the opportunity to get fabulous wine like today's offer, at a very nice price point, especially since I can't get it locally at any price.

We really have loved our IH from WineWoot. Now if we could only get out west for a visit to the vineyard...

Hopefully these will ship out soon, we'd love to have them to take along on vacation!

Joy,
We absolutely cannot wait to see you. The 2012 supper was clearly a culinary delight...

And now the tourists watching the dailies know at least one venue on the tour we'd not want to miss.

Thank you and your parents for hosting us yet again.

David Munksgard here & happy to toss in my opinion. How well a wine ages is to a great extent due to the wines pH. The lower the pH, the better it will age. Our Green Valley climate gives us wines of very low pH values. Our bubblies age great. Easy 6-8 years from now in a proper cellar. Now, how one holds out that long is another story.

Great question! I love the way our bubblies age. They become richer and rounder and gain in nuttiness. I say two years from now (that is, after disgorging) without any questions. Thereafter, it depends of course on how they are stored, but in your cellar, I'd say five years ... easy. Maybe even ten.

I am well aware it was built into the price. I was more addressing the post that I quoted that implied woot doesn't now (or ever did) charge sales tax.

Which explains Joel's comment, being from Colorado.

But we get taxed here in Ohio and are not on that list...

On 1/1/12 we drank a bottle of 1999 Iron Horse Vineyards Russian Cuvée. It was by no means dead, and some did enjoy it. I discovered I'm not fond of the aged yeastiness though. We also had a 1998 bottle about a year and a half ago that chipgreen and ddeuddeg quite enjoyed.

Sometimes one holds out for inexplicable reasons, I suppose. I'm quite sure I've told Joy this story, but I doubt you've heard it. I picked up a bottle of 1991 Wedding Cuvée somewhere while I was on a bus trip in the mid-90's and took it home, where it sat in a closet in my second floor apartment for a number of years, where the temperature regularly climbed into the 90's while I was away for the summer. Then it sat around for more years, at least not being subjected to such temperature extremes, until we finally decided to drink it and see if it was still any good. That would have been shortly before the 2008 rpm tour. It was nothing short of sublime, not even taking into account the age and bad handling it had been given. Obviously, I'm not recommending holding onto these that long, and certainly not abusing them that way, but it illustrates the aging potential for a well-made wine such as yours.

I highly recommend a visit to Iron Horse not only for the wine, but for the absolutely gorgeous setting. It is really worth the effort, imho.
