This wine is richly textured with a lovely mid-palate creamy richness and bright acidity that leads to a finish with a long richness of flavor.There are complex aromas of caramel, roasted nuts, honey, fresh Bosc pear, ripe peach, nectarine, and honeydew melon accented with nougat, brown sugar, baking spice, and red apple. Flavors of peach, apple, and crème brulee mingle with hints of butterscotch, caramel, warm pie crust, and baked apple with touches of light vanilla and oak spice.
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
