Russian Cuvee has multiple layers of meaning. Originally named for the historic Reagan-Gorbachev Summit Meetings in 1985, it also refers to the vineyard’s unique location in the Russian River area, and it is a nod to the Russian taste for slightly richer bubbly. The Russian is the “sweetest” in the Iron Horse line up, though it is still technically brut-level dry.
