Winemaker's Notes

Fruit aromas of white peach, and nectarine are followed by honeysuckle, honey, and light floral with hints of toast, butterscotch, grapefruit, and cantaloupe. This wine is richly textured with a mouth-coating applely acidity and a round and creamy mid-palate creating that signature Sonoma-Cutrer balance from start to finish. Flavors of Golden Delicious apple are accented with toasted nuts and barrel spice.

Critical Acclaim

"This wine packs a lot of luxury for the price, a round, supple chardonnay with flavors of apple and cream. There's also a cool feel - the earthen cool of a cave wall - that balances the wine's richness. For grilled lobster. Best Buy."
