Sonoma-Cutrer, a brand of Brown-Forman Corp., announced two new vintages in celebration of its 40th anniversary: the 2019 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and the Cutrer Chardonnay. The new vintages join Sonoma-Cutrer’s Estate Chardonnay to celebrate the Sonoma county winery’s 40 years of winemaking. The 2019 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has a ruby-purple hue and aromas of exotic spice, blackberry fruit and sweet vanilla, the company says. The Cutrer Chardonnay has aromas of light caramel and brown sugar with cedar notes, and finishes with flavors of white peach, nuts, toasted oak and baking spice, it adds. Sonoma-Cutrer’s Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has a 13.9% ABV, while the Cutrer Chardonnay has a 14.1% ABV. Both vintages are packaged in 750-ml bottles at a suggested retail price of $35. The wines will be available at retail locations nationwide as well as direct from the winery at www.sonomacutrer.com.
