Sonoma-Cutrer Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019
The Sonoma Coast is as much about lifestyle as it is about the celebration this wonderful grape deserves. The winemakers are selective about the fruit that goes into this wine to ensure that vintage after vintage, they are producing an exceptional Chardonnay. This wine has all of the elements of a classic Chardonnay. It is a wine you serve when you want to show people you care about them. Or, sometimes it’s just for you – because you’ve earned it.
This vintage of Sonoma Coast is a beautiful pale, medium straw color. As you pour, you are greeted with stone fruit aromas of white peach and nectarine along with scents of juicy melon combining with oak spice hints of vanilla, toasted nuts, light caramel and subtle notes of cinnamon. The creamy richness of this wine boasts flavors of ripe pear and peach that give it an elegant, beautiful balance that is seamless from start to finish. The 2019 vintage is mouth-filling with lots of finesse that leads to a lush finish. The balanced vibrant acidity and long barrel spice finish round out a nice length of flavor.

|There’s good cut to the apple pastry and pear tart flavors, which feature a creamy texture. Rich and open-textured midpalate, with a finish of angel food cake. Drink now through 2024.|
