2019 Sonoma-Cutrer '40th Anniversary Winemaker's Release Limited No. 40' Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

$69.95

We like the story behind this so much, we have to share it right from the source: “On a beautiful, sunny afternoon in middle of June 2020, with everyone isolated in their homes, our winemaking team past and present of Bill Bonetti (1981-1990), Terry Adams (1991-2010), Mick Schroeter (2010-Present) and Cara Morrison (2005-Present) virtually blended this very remarkable wine to mark this significant moment in our history.” It’s hard to imagine virtual blending, but the results speak for themselves. Beautiful aromas of pear, citrus and baked apple find minerality and a touch of flint. Oak spice is well integrated and the body finds a great balance between creaminess and acidity. Well done, team.

Wine Spectator

Focused, with minerally purity and notes of dried thyme to the green pear and apple flavors. A zesty acidity powers the savory and direct finish.
