“Single” is the word that most accurately describes the attributes of this exclusive “Cutrer Single Barrel Chardonnay” lot. Fruit for this wine was picked in a single harvest from a single block of the famous The Cutrer vineyard located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The wine was barrel aged in a single oak barrel made of wood from a single French forest.
Every element that has played a role in crafting this elegant wine has been in Sonoma-Cutrer’s control since the beginning. The wine itself is richly textured with a creamy mid-palate and a long persistent finish highlighted with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature bright acidity. Fruit flavors of peach and apple are accentuated with hints of baked apple, butterscotch, warm pie crust, caramel, light vanilla and oak. If you are looking for the quintessential Russian River Chardonnay look no further—this is the ultimate expression, designed for the collector’s cellar.
A winemaker dinner or store visit is offered as part of this lot. Must be scheduled on a mutually agreeable date and booked within a year of receipt.
