This is a wine packed with full bodied oak and butter-like tastes. It's a fantastic wine to pair with seafood, and great in any weather. Typically, I drink this wine in the hotter months, as I am a seasonal drinker of wines, but I would recommend this wine in the early Fall or late Spring, too. This is full wine, and does indeed have a rich, balanced finish.

Using grapes from their renowned vineyards of "Cutrer" and "Vine Hill" Sonoma Cutrer has created a stunning new member to their noted family of wines. Well balanced with a citrusy nose and and slightly oaky flavors make this a perfect wine with grilled fish.

"The Cutrer is overtly California in style compared to Sonoma-Cutrer's masterpiece from the Les Pierres Vineyard. This wine is crafted from selected lots at the Russian River Valley estate

The Cutrer is overtly California in style compared to Sonoma-Cutrer's masterpiece from the Les Pierres Vineyard. This wine is crafted from selected lots at the Russian River Valley estate, shows voluptuous ripe pear and apple fruit with a citrus and mineral overtone and a firm spine. Notes of spice and toasted oak are more prominent than in the current release of Les Pierres, but then this wine is one year younger and perhaps a year away from truly coming into its own. A Chardonnay for drinking now or cellaring

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes An aromatic melange of honey, lime zest and grilled pineapple first greets the nose, laced with suggestions of toffee, earth and seductive aromas of fresh-baked bread from the French oak barrels. This wine introduces itself like a fresh ocean breeze and unfurls on the palate with a smooth fruit entry of kiwi and green apple that grows in roundness at the center of the palate, enlivened with a very crisp lemony sensation and a delicate caramel toffee in the aftertaste.

Tasting Notes:

Very pretty aromas of jasmine and rose petal come quickly back to more expected tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and a bit of pear. Roasted hazelnut is joined with nougat and almond butter, finishing with a touch of lime and lichee. The wine is medium weight, clean with a wonderful acid backbone, and it expands from your first sip to your last, offering flavors of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pear and kumquat, with subtle vanilla bean and a bit of herbal mushroom, with a lingering, memorable finish with hints of minerality and apple, lime and a surprisingly wonderful touch of strawberry. It’s a market basket of flavors, and one I know you’ll enjoy.
