Russian River Ranches Chardonnay

The Les Pierres Vineyard is known worldwide for its rocky soil that infuses the grapes – and the wine – with varied mineral essence. The result is a single vineyard wine that is complex, elegantly structured and a favorite among Chardonnay drinkers.
Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Sonoma-Cutrer has long been associated with premium California Chardonnay; so much so, that its best kept secret is its award winning Pinot Noirs. Crafted from 100% Russian River Valley fruit you will find this Pinot to have incredible depth, with a concentration of red and dark fruits.
This wine is classic California; clean, fresh and oak-influenced. Fruit for this single vineyard wine comes from specific blocks within the winery’s Cutrer vineyard. It has a rich texture that is big, round and creamy, flowing into a bright finish balanced with Sonoma-Cutrer’s hallmark acidity.
Its uncompromising methods of vineyard management, grape oversight and cellar maturation are the winemaking principles that allow Sonoma-Cutrer to create wines unlike any other. The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay reflects a balance of fruit flavors and oak aging, creating a fuller-bodied wine.

The structure and style is loosely based off of the rosés of Provence; classic, light, elegant, and delicate.
