Sonoma-Cutrer Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013

$25

New release!The newest member of the lineup is the Sonoma-Cutrer 2013 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, an assemblage of select lots representing the best that the Sonoma Coast appellation has to offer. The backbone of this blend comes from the estate Cutrer vineyard, where vines struggle in alluvial soils and their Grand Cru approach to viticultural practices assures that only the finest fruit is the foundation for this offering. Vine Hill, with sandy, clay, loam soils adds significantly to the mix. Distinct aromas of ginger and lemon zest are joined by toasty coconut, melon and caramel alongside a mineral, flinty cedar-chest oakiness overlaid by notes of honeysuckle. In the mouth, a well-balanced wine with a solid acid backbone is rich, medium to heavy in weight with a broad yet still firm mid-palate. The finish is long and lingering and notable for a touch of spice and lively acidty. Flavors of lemon, apple, pear, pineapple and cantaloupe -- the full array of Sonoma's cornucopia of fruit, joins a nutty, spicy, lightly oaky profile that stakes out a unique territory sure to please those who love Chardonnay

Stick of butter in a glass. Good weight, but felt like I was at a bad wedding in the late 80's (w/o Adam Sandler).

A little more acidic - very crisp and clear initially warms with sitting.

Low viscosity, bright yellow color. Smells very pleasant like peaches, ripe fruit, buttery. Very nice, smooth taste, a little acidic though. Nice. Would drink it again.

Smoky butter on nose and ceamy butter dominates with green apple and lemon zest on palate. Noticably balanced but maybe little more oak of little less acidity might help. Very smooth but little light.
