New Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore
Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 2014 release
Sonoma-Cutrer Finished (Pinot Noir)
An American Whiskey First
The Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir Finish was created under the watchful eye of Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris, who partnered with Sonoma-Cutrer Winemaking Director Mick Schroeter to develop a one-of-a-kind release.
This ninth and latest release includes Woodford Reserve finish-aged in a used Pinot Noir barrel that was shipped directly from the Sonoma-Cutrer winery in California. Originally, the barrels aged three unique vintages of the brand’s Burgundian style Pinot Noir, which gives this Sonoma-Cutrer Pinot Noir Finish a refreshingly fruit forward flavor profile that is truly one-of-a-kind.
In 2007 Woodford had released a Sonoma-Cutrer wine-finished whiskey also, but that was a Chardonnay barrel, not Pinot Noir like the 2014 release.
