Review: 2022 Sonoma-Cutrer Rose of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Review: 2022 Sonoma-Cutrer Rose of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Sonoma-Cutrer releases this rose made from Russian River pinot noir annually, always just in time for summer. As in the past, the sub-12% abv ensures it’s suitable for daytime sipping, and the flavor profile — with heavy notes of strawberries and cream, layers of fresh blossoms, and a spritz of orange flower water — fits the bill just right. An undercurrent of the lightest touches of tannin is present to remind you you’re not sipping on fresh fruit juice. This isn’t a wine that tends to change much from one vintage to the next, and that’s not a complaint. For beaches, barbecues, and summer picnics, it’s an easy go-to that will offend no one while agreeing heartily with your wallet.
