Tasting Notes:

This small batch wine is normally only available to Sonoma-Cutrer Wine Club members. Until now! As our VIP member, please enjoy this exclusive opportunity to purchase a rare Pinot Noir. This is the remainder of their 2010 vintage.

A perfect food pairing wine, the Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir presents with an intense ruby red color. A bold Pinot Noir, it opens with aromas of black cherry pie and currants, and is followed by notes of cedar and allspice, perfect for a Thanksgiving meal. A forward floral component weaves perfectly with the fruit bouquet. On the palate, everything a Pinot Noir should be… raspberry, blueberry and blackberry meld together with a smooth well-balanced finish that signals new French oak barrels.

About the Winery
Sonoma-Cutrer Originating in 1973, Sonoma-Cutrer’s foundation was built upon a selection of several key vineyard properties in the benchlands, hillsides and rocky foothills in what later became recognized as the Sonoma Coast Appellation – an area with long, even growing seasons due to the cool and foggy coastal climate.
