A Sonoma beauty

15 Dec

2006 Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, California, USA $24.95 LCBO #608653

This week’s wine is a beauty! The 2006 Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay is a really well put together white wine with flavours of tropical fruit, vanilla and butter. What makes this wine so accessible is the hint of sweetness that lingers on the finish. It would make the perfect gift to yourself or someone you love. (How’s that for a Hallmark moment?). This wine would pair very well with roast chicken, baked sea bass or halibut.

I also wanted to start something new this week. Going forward I wanted to help out all you cheese lovers by recommending a good cheese to serve with the wine that I am recommending. Try serving this wine with a young Gouda.

I would definitely recommend that you pick up a bottle or this wine. Even at $24.95, this wine is a great deal…but that’s just my opinion. Let me know what you think.
