Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay Russian River Valley the Cutrer 2011
External Reviews for Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay Russian River Valley the Cutrer
This is a medium-bodied Chardonnay with a wonderful acidic backbone. On the nose there are aromas of jasmine and rose petal, followed by notes of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and a touch of pear. With offerings of grapefruit, citrus, lemon, pear and kumquat, there is also a bit of herbaceousness and leads into a mineral finish with hints of apple, lime and strawberry.
Intense aromas of ripe apple are dotted with cinnamon and clove, as hazelnuts bathed in cream join fragrant notes of acacia blossoms. In the mouth, the wine is dense and concentrated, while simultaneously offering a softer, sensual side in balance. Flavors of baked apple appear alongside glazed pineapple and fresh tangerine, as a hint of clove entertains the taste buds. With its perfect backbone of acidity, the wine is fresh, alive and begging to be enjoyed again and again.
