Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Dry Red Wine is round, silky, and elegant with a rich ruby-purple hue. Each bottle of wine opens up with scents of vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate and black tea and just a hint of earth to deliver black cherry and sweet barrel spice flavors in every glass. The winner of the gold medal at the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, this dark red wine marries traditional Burgundian winemaking methods with Sonoma-Cutrer's California innovation by combining grapes from Owsley and Vine Hill vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Aged in one-year and two-year-old French oak barrels, the final blend is evolved in wine bottles for an additional six months, producing a richly textured pinot noir wine with a beautiful brightness. This delicious Pinot Noir has a 14.1% alcohol per volume, and is made with fine grain tannins for a wonderfully long, smooth finish. With sumptuous flavors that mingle with balanced acidity, this Pinot wine is perfect for red wine drinks or to pair with beef, lamb, mushrooms, or root vegetable dishes.
