Pale yellow and notes of floral aromas. Taste had apple and pear flavors, some citrus and bold oak, maybe too much. The 2012 was better however does not compare to vintages when Brice Cutrer Jones was making wines for Sonoma-Cutrer.

Even the Cooter's gone leaner in 2013! 1st time tasting this in years...more fruit aromas--yellow apple, juicy green pear and white peach, oak is pretty apparent on the nose and even more on the palate, but not the butterbomb I remember. Buttery chard drinkers, your juice is becoming endangered.

Excellent Chardonnay -- nice fruit, slightly buttery and a bit of acidity. Enjoying at Yankee Pier

Great apple and pear, there is great acidity it almost made me think it was fermented in stainless steal, but the finish brings in that oak character and creaminess.

Very bright and effervescent for a Chardonnay.
