Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
This wine is a classic California – clean, fresh, and oak-influenced. It has a rich texture that is big, round and creamy, and balanced with the hallmark Sonoma-Cutrer acidity. Aromas of caramel, nougat, honey and butterscotch are accented with ginger, cinnamon, peach and baked apple. Flavors of ripe peaches and toasted nuts are layered with caramel, toasty oak and subtle hints of spice.
"An expansive chardonnay, this strikes a delicate balance between oak, ripe fruit and the creaminess of lees. Its richness feels natural, driven by clean, lemony acidity as much as sweet butterscotch tones, leaving an appetizing impression of roasted hazelnuts."
