(From 2010 Vintage) Russian Cuvee commemorates the style of sparklings we made for the historic Reagan-Gorbachev summit meetings, which ended the Cold War. this is the richest of hte Iron Horse Sparklings, yet still technically brut level dry. An ideal toasting wine, it has been served at the White House for five consecutive persidential administrations.

Winemaker's Notes

By nose: Caramel, vanilla and warm milk. By mouth: mandarin orange, custard and a rich creamy mouth feel. A perfect aperitif by itself and for a great cocktail, simply add a few pomegranate seeds to the flute. Pair with rich foods such a foie gras, as well as sweet and sour sauces and anything prepared with exotic spices, including curries and chilies. Also great with a BLT.
