This vintage was a successful one for Iron Horse, proven again with their release of this LD, after aging on the lees for nine years. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy, with a refined mousse. The flavors of raspberry and lime are beginning to dry out but are still rich and savory. These late-disgorged wines are not meant for further aging, so drink up.

This is David Munksgard’s top selection from the Sterling family’s estate, disgorged in August 2013 after eight years on the lees in bottle. An equal blend of chardonnay (lending apple-skin crispness) and pinot noir (providing bass notes and flavor depth), this wine starts from a tight place and finishes with brisk richness. In between, the flavors have resonance, from delicate high notes of spice and fresh cream to darker tones of minerals, baked apple and caramel. The lasting impression is elegant, clean and lively. Have a bottle ready to chill when Dungeness crabs come into season. (250 cases)

Opulent and rich, this remains crisply focused, with toasted hazelnut aromas mixing with floral apple and citrus notes, layered with complex flavors of raspberry, orange zest and spicy ginger. Drink now through 2015. - TF
