The Cutrer Vineyard

2018 Chardonnay

The Cutrer is always a rich, complex wine and, this particular vintage, is even more so! Imagine walking into a baker’s kitchen and smelling a warm fruit pie fresh from the oven. Those delectable aromas are waiting in your glass with integrated oak notes of caramel, pie crust, ripe peach, nougat, brown sugar and honeysuckle floral notes. Layers of white peach and pear, light vanilla, roasted nuts and baking spice fill your mouth with the first sip. This wine is a beautiful balance between a lovely mid-palate creaminess with bright acidity and a long (very), mouthwatering finish. The Cutrer appeals to wine lovers who enjoy a creamier, rounder Chardonnay with more oak influence and this vintage is exceptional!

About this Wine

The Cutrer Vineyard

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.

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. 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.
