2012 Kutch "Falstaff" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1174561 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Falstaff is the most overtly perfumed, savory wine in the range, the result of a cool micro-climate and the use of 100% whole clusters. The 2012 has closed down a bit since it was bottled, but it should re-emerge in another year or two. While the McDougall Ranch is up-front and powerful, the Falstaff is all about aromatics, acidity and energy. Hints of lavender, mint, sage and crushed flowers offer only a hint of what might develop in bottle. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Vibrant, spice-accented black raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with lively mineral and floral qualities adding complexity. Sappy and delicate on the palate, displaying sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors perked up by vibrant minerality. The precise, persistent finish repeats the red fruit notes and shows just a hint of tannins. This graceful Pinot has a very nice, light touch but hardly lacks for depth of flavor. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The impressively saturated deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Pinot Noir Falstaff (385 cases; 13.4% alcohol) offers plenty of red, blue and black fruits, and a tangy, pure style. The acids suppress the wine’s expressiveness, but there is more than sufficient depth, ripeness and purity in this impressive, premier cru Cote de Beaune-styled Pinot Noir. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)
