A perfect holiday wine. Authoritatively flavored sparkler with a rich, creamy mouth feel and lots going on besides the refreshing acidity and the bubbles. The Pinot Noir in this Blanc de Noirs definitely shows through in the aromas and flavors, accompanied by ripe green apples and some yeastiness. Maybe not as toasty or French-styled as some of the older Iron Horse cuvees, but definitely an excellent wine. - HK 2005-12-25
