I feel like a broken record reviewing the Iron Horse sparkling wines: they are simply always excellent. I think in general I prefer the older cuvees and this "young" wine was a little less creamy than some of the other Iron Horse sparklers. But it had the usual Iron Horse liveliness and balance, with a little more green apple and minerals than in the yeastier versions. Refreshing and bracing, and clean as a whistle. - HK 2003-11-13
