So much freshness and cracked stone minerality. Underneath there is piercing cherry fruit and a whiff of sweet spice. Lots of intensity in the mouth. There is some fruit but this is bone dry and really shows high-toned savory stoniness. Long, mouthwatering finish. Very unique!
UPDATE: On night 2, still super fresh, but showing more fruit and a sweet mint leaf note. Great wine. — 11 days ago
Best tasting wine I’ve had by far. Brice bought in Ohio. — a year ago
Located in the cool Sonoma Coast viticultural region, founded in 1973 by Brice Cutrer Jones, now owned by big wine. Straw yellow with stone fruit aromas, citrus and oak with spice notes. On the palate apple and peach, complex, savory with toasty oak and nutty caramel flavors. Creamy texture, medium finish ending with mineral tones. Much better than ‘15. — a year ago
Uncorked ~30m, then ~15m rest in glass.
Nose has oxidized yellow apple, white flowers and fresh baked bread.
Palate has buttery yellow apple mash, oxidized strawberry, great mineral balance and a long finish.
I've finally met a Brice bottle I can fully embrace, this vintage selection is just perfect, approachable in its youth and quite elegant. — 2 months ago
Sonoma-Cutrer vineyards was founded in 1973 by Brice Cutrer Jones, but sold out to a big wine house, now, in my opinion, its hit or miss on the quality. So far the 2015 RRR was a bit of a disappointment, but the 2016 was much improved. Stone fruit aromas with floral scents. Apple, peach and pear flavors with vanilla oak spice, a hint of citrus. Medium finish, ending toasty with mineral character. — a year ago
