Russian River Valley


100% Chardonnay


100% Malolactic


100% barrel-fermented and aged 5 months sur-lies. Barrels stirred and topped weekly. After aging in the newer French oak barrels for five months, racked to blend and placed in 3-year-old French oak.

The Making Of

Grapes were hand-harvested at night into shallow bins and then cooled to 50°F to preserve the fruit’s fresh flavors and natural acidity. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed and naturally settled.

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. The Cutrer's swirl showcases its rich texture and long tears, inherent to this signature vintage's elevated alcohol content, and aroma of soft fall flavors indicative of pear, butterscotch, and baked apple.
