Rütz Cellars' Sonoma Cuvée Pinot Noir has long been the stalwart performer in the Rütz portfolio of Burgundian-style wines. For almost twenty years, its character has evolved in its signature profile to grace the list of restaurants worldwide. Its backbone of finite 100% Pinot Noir grapes stems from Rütz's signature vineyards throughout Sonoma County's heartland. A core ingredient of this wine, the Gold Ridge soil, coupled with the terroir of the Russian River Valley, has shaped this bottling to portray Rütz Cellars' world-class status as a Pinot Noir producer.

The 2008 Sonoma Cuvée Pinot Noir's soft and silky texture folds together with a touch of smoke from the French oak barrels, and bright fresh upfront red and black cherry flavors hint with cassis for a refined, beautifully balanced wine. The Tasting Panel awards the Rütz 2008 Sonoma Cuvée Pinot Noir 93 Points: "Milk chocolate and deep plum are inviting on the nose. The lightness-of-being factor takes a high acid, cherry-toned red and tempers with cinnamon and spice. Soft, but ripe and alert."
