The Cutrer is a rich, complex wine. On the nose, you are greeted with integrated oak notes of caramel, pie crust, apple pie, ripe peach, nectarine, nougat, brown sugar and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is nicely focused with a creamy mid-palate, bright acidity and a long, rich finish. Flavors of warm pie crust, fresh apple and pear are accented with touches of nut, light vanilla and baking spice. Each of Sonoma-Cutrer’s Chardonnays is unique in their flavor characteristics. The Cutrer appeals to wine lovers who enjoy a creamier, rounder Chardonnay with more oak influence.
Located in the heart of the famous Russian River Valley, The Cutrer Vineyard soil rests on an ancient seabed that retains heat throughout the day and into the early evening, radiating that heat up to the closely spaced vines. The Cutrer Vineyard is multi-faceted, with microclimates throughout the vineyard. The soil characteristics, varied rootstocks, and diverse clones interact with the climate to create different nuances in each block of the vineyard, giving the winemakers a virtual spice rack of flavors to create our wines.Download Winemaker Notes
