Iron Horse Vineyards - Sebastopol

2/5 stars

I really, really, really wanted to like this place. I'm quite fond of the Fairy Tale Cuvee served only at Disneyland, which is made by this company, so I was eager to visit Iron Horse. The view is absolutely 5 stars, and the service was nice enough, but the sparkling wine is no Domaine Carneros. I want to be fair, though, and say that if you're a fan of bone dry champagne, you may like Iron Horse more than me. Since I'm a fan of the sweeter, more delicate champagnes, this place was not my cup of tea. Some of it even tasted sour ... And the pinot noirs were nothing to write home about.

The tastings are also expensive (I think it was around $13) and the pours were not generous.
