The 2017 Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay "The Cutrer" is a definitive Russian River Valley white wine. This wine dazzles with its liveliness and richness. Enjoy its complex aromas and flavors of ripe core fruits, peach fuzz, mineral, and pie crust with a savory chicken pot pie. (Tasted: September 17, 2019, Windsor, CA)
Flavors of warm pie crust and baked apple 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.
