Review: 2021 Sonoma-Cutrer Rose of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Review: 2021 Sonoma-Cutrer Rose of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Sonoma-Cutrer’s pinot-driven rose offers a classic Provence-style construction, a mere 11.9% abv, driven by white flowers, ripe strawberry, and lingering vanilla notes as the wine develops in glass. Lemon notes emerge late in the game, the lightest layer of florals lifting the otherwise vanilla-laden, nougat-like sweetness, just a touch. This wine never tends toward complexity, and 2021 is no exception. For spring- or summertime sipping, however, I can’t really complain.

    My father was the head man at River Oaks Vinyard back in the 70s when variables were being introduced he was the beginning of a trend. Reminds me of this in your article.
