2003 Iron Horse Vineyards Brut LD

Green Valley Champagne Blend more

7/30/2015 - Ecb1456 Likes this wine: 92 points

Ok probably my last review on this even though there are still 11 bottles left. Yummy golden color. Compact bubbles. Sparkly yeasty apple with a hint of lemon muffins. Green apples on the tongue with a crisp and exquisite bite. Melts into a buttery lemon-lime zest. Dry yeast aftertaste that lingers longer than in-laws after a free meal. Delightful by itself (if you don't want to taste anything else after) or with heartier pork products, cheese and even, as i had, a slightly spicy chicken thai dish. Window may be closing but it is still wide open now. Do not let the in-laws in until this one is done.

Consistent with previous bottles. Definite yeasty, dough notes on the nose but with tart red fruits and some citrus as well. Still crisp and refreshing but seemed more complex than I recall from earlier bottles.

Green apple with a splash of lemon zest nose. Beautiful pale straw color. Medium size bubbles. Chewy apple initially with creamy yeast following. Fading fast as this was a spectacular vintage but does not have the crisp tartness from before but still a great bubbly. I will miss this vintage as it is all gone from the cellar but the memories linger...at least until I continue later tonight.

Crisp, yet round, lemony and lemongrass. A fair bit of mineral zing. Medium finish with lots of green apple.

Deep earthy and nutty flavors. White fruit has faded to the background. Long and lingering finish.

Nose: Lemon, flour. Taste: Bread and lemon/citrus notes with nice but not over-the-top acidity. I can get a little bit of a bitter peach note others have written about. Strong finish. Not the most subtle bubbles I've ever had... Overall this wine is well-made and just plain enjoyable to drink.

Definitely better than previous bottle or maybe just my mood has improved. Still has the toasty overtones but the zest is a little buried. Good bubbles and very cleansing but somewhat unremarkable for these guys. Worked fine with some cheese but got lost with anything bolder. Maybe just a blah vintage it has been somewhat uneven from bottle to bottle. I still have a few bottle left so we will see. I will bring in some outside help to make sure it is not me.

Strong aromas of yeast and soughdough bread. Upon first pouring, it was lively with good bubles, but they quickly went flat in the glass and it became tired tasting. Green apples, some lemon.

75% Pinot, 25% Chard. Great fruit and a sweet creaminess here. This is very nice and my favorite of the sparklings.

This was drinking very nice. Started off with lots of bubles, but I actually thought the flavors increased as the bubles decreased. Green apples and yeast are definitely present here, as well as a nutty character and a decent amount of wood.

Flavor was pear and some pineapple and there was a good dose of acid. Don't chill too long as wine definitely shows better as it warms up. Went well with a steamed lobster.

A little citrus, but a ton of ripe pear and peach. Really it smelled like a can of fruit cocktail.
