Sonoma-Cutrer Releases the 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir for the New Year
Sonoma-Cutrer welcomes a new wine into the world, the 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir!
This award-winning winery located in one of my favorite wine regions, The Russian River Valley, has produced yet another great wine, the 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir.
I must admit, I am in love with this Rosé. This is probably the best Rosé I have tried to date. Maybe it’s thanks to the Sonoma-Cutrer’s female-led winery team which includes Pinot Noir Winemaker Zidanelia Arcidiacono. Zidanelia seems to know exactly what wine aficionados want in a wine. At least she seems to know what I want, as this rosé has checked all my boxes.
Zidanelia said “We are very excited to share this exceptional wine after what proved to be a difficult year. I am privileged to have collaborated with a strong team of women including our director of vineyard operations, cellarmaster and quality manager to overcome 2020’s many obstacles and deliver a stunning Rosé of Pinot Noir.”
And overcome these obstacles they did with this Rosé. This light, bright wine introduces flavors of strawberries and citrus in a mouthful of juiciness. It has a beautiful blush color that lured me in and said “come give me a try”. It was so delightful, I couldn’t wait for my next sip…. my next glass.
Be assured that rosé is no longer just a summer wine. “Drink pink” is now a year-round mantra thanks to the addition of this delightful Sonoma-Cutrer 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir. Yes, 2021 is looking a whole lot better already!
This wine is perfect for anytime and has a flavor profile that lets it pair with a variety of dishes including:
❖ Spicy Ahi Poke
❖ Margarita Pizza
❖ Crab Cakes with Siracha Mayo
I also like getting a small group of friends together and serving it with a charcuterie board.
This blush release is a beautiful and delicate example of why Russian River Valley Pinot Noir makes a wonderful rosé. And it’s always happy hour somewhere, am I right?
**Full Disclosure: I received product in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
