2014 Kutch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1295347 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is dark, bold and pungent, with intense red and black fruit, savory herbs, mint, herbs and tobacco flavors that are front and center. This is an unusually dark, intense wine from Jamie Kutch. The 2014 will drink well young, but readers should expect a fairly rich appellation-level Pinot. About 50% of the blend is from Sonoma Stage, a clay-rich soil that contributes textural depth. Last year I reviewed the 2014 Hellenthal. That juice was not bottled separately, but also went into the SC bottling. Kutch destemmed 40% of the fruit here, which is unusual for his wines and gives the Sonoma Coast much of its up-front personality. This is a very serious appellation level Pinot. Jamie Kutch's 2014 Pinots have put on quite a bit of weight over the last year. Now in bottle, the 2014s come across as bigger, richer wines than they did from barrel. Kutch fans will want to be on the lookout for the new 2014 Chardonnay, which emerges from two sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains. In addition to these wines, I also tasted a number of 2015s that show the power and intensity of the year. The 2015s are still raw and embryonic, but they also appear to have quite a bit of potential. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2016)
