About this Wine

Russian River Ranches

Russian River Ranches is a beautiful, pale straw color with pale green tinges. As you smell this wine, you will notice fruit forward aromas with hints of light floral notes. Scents of Bosc pear and Honeycrisp apple are accentuated with notes of nougat, roasted nuts, oak spice and a touch of citrus blossom. Russian River Ranches is a cuvée of distinct vineyard lots, each contributing its own personality to the wine. This wine is made from the Sonoma Coast appellation, which features diverse soil types and growing conditions perfect for producing exceptional Chardonnay.

 

*In Wine and Spirits’ Annual Restaurant Poll, Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches has been a leader in the Chardonnay category, consistently earning a top three spot for the last 31 years.

Virtual Swirl

Virtual Swirl

Tasting wine begins well before the liquid ever touches your lips – it starts with a look, a swirl, and an intake of breath. The swirl serves to open your vintage and introduces oxygen which creates a bouquet of aromas and allows you to gauge viscosity and alcohol content. Our Russian River Ranches swirl showcases its beautiful straw coloring indicative of a well-crafted Chardonnay and opens with the aroma of pear, citrus notes, and oak spice.
