2013 Kutch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1199113 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red cherries, plums, spices, menthol and rose petals meld together in the 2013 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Dark, mysterious and supple in the glass, the 2013 is super pure and pretty today. Expressive savory notes from the 100% whole clusters add lift and nuance on the finish. The 2013 is a blend of fruit from Sonoma Stage, where the terrain is rich in clay, and McDougall, which is characterized by sandier soils. This is one of the best artisan Sonoma Coast Pinots readers will find for the money. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Like all of the wines in the range this too is quite floral with subtle spice and herbal tea nuances adding breath to the airy mix of both red and dark pinot fruit scents. There is a really lovely mouth feel to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess solid mid-palate concentration before culminating in a dusty, sappy and lingering finish where the supporting structure is notably firm but not hard. This is quite good and while it too will require a few years to better harmonize, I very much like the depth and delivery. Drink 2020+ Inner quote mark (10/2015)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2013 Sonoma Coast bottling of pinot noir from Jamie Kutch is admirably low in octane, tipping the scales at a cool 12.3 percent alcohol and the wine is excellent. The youthful bouquet offers up scents of cherries, pomegranate, a touch of coffee, fresh herb tones, a lovely base of soil and a very discreet base of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and tangy, with fine intensity of flavor, moderate tannins, tangy acids and very good length and grip on the nascently complex finish. It is still very early days for this wine and I would tuck it away in the cellar for a couple of years and let it unwind a bit structurally, but it is a very good bottle and will certainly reward a bit of patience.

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid to light cherry red. Delicate red-cherry aromas with a light and attractive earthy quality to restrain the fruit sweetness. This is pure fruited with barely a hint of oak, certainly not in the flavour and perhaps only just in the texture -- the tannins are super-fine but definite and give shape to the wine and lead to a long finish. According to Kutch, the use of 100% whole stems is what gives body to this wine, which has just 12.3% alcohol but does not feel light. The tannins build as you sip the wine and the combination of those and the freshness suggest it will age well over the next 5 years or more, probably longer, though I haven't tasted older vintages.
