Sonoma-Cutrer Grower Vintner Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) Aromas of apple pie, Bosc pear and white peach are accented with oak spice, a hint of vanilla, toasted nuts, and a touch of butterscotch and light caramel. This wine has the distinctive Sonoma-Cutrer balance between elegance and richness for a medium-bodied, mouth-filling wine. The creamy richness has flavors of ripe apple, pear, peach and melon balanced with a bright acidity with lots of finesse. There is a long, silky finish highlighted with notes of roasted nuts and barrel spice.

    (2006 Vintage) The Chardonnays of Sonoma Cutrer have always veered to the restrained side of the varietal spectrum, and, while this bottling starts out with a fair bit of honeyed-apple richness, it steers to firmness with minerals and firm acids its most lasting traits. Its tendency to stiffness may abate some with age, and it is a wine that should match up nicely with a wide range of white-fleshed fish recipes.
