KUTCH
Kutch 2013 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 93 pts
Sonoma Coast, Sonoma
Red wine from United States
Drinking window: 2015 - 2025


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.

Jamie Kutch continues to show notable ambition with his wines. A Burgundy and Piedmont
fanatic, Kutch crafts mid-weight, gracious Pinots built on expressive aromatics, chiseled fruit and
an overall sense of energy. In 2013 Kutch adds a new Pinot from Bohan, while in 2014 there is a
Pinot from Hellenthal as well as a Chardonnay. Kutch reported that malos were early in 2013, so,
as a result he opted to bottle in July 2014, a much shorter elevage than the 2012s, all of which were
still in barrel at this time last year. I also tasted a Kutch's new 2014 Santa Cruz Mountains
Chardonnay, which was still in the middle of its malolactic fermentation. The sample I saw
suggested a wine of considerable promise.

Dark red and purplish fruit emerge from the 2013 Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch. There is
more than enough fruit to fill out the wine's frame quite nicely. This south-facing site yields
fruit of notable depth and richness, while the whole clusters add a gorgeous sense of lift.

KUTCH
Kutch 2013 Pinot Noir Bohan Vineyard 91 pts
Sonoma Coast, Sonoma
Red wine from United States
Drinking window: 2015 - 2025


The Kutch 2013 Pinot Noir Bohan Vineyard hits the palate with surprising depth, power
and intensity, all pretty unusual for this part of the Sonoma Coast. The 2013 is a wine of
pure verticality and primary flavors, so readers will have to be patient. This is Jamie Kutch's
first Pinot from Bohan, a historic, dry-farmed parcel on the Sonoma Coast. The first two
vintages suggest the Bohan is going to be a fairly structured, tannic Pinot.

Kutch 2013 Pinot Noir Falstaff Vineyard 91 pts
Sonoma Coast, Sonoma
Red wine from United States
Drinking window: 2015 - 2025


Rose petals, mint, spices and sweet red berries are all laced together in the 2013 Pinot Noir
Falstaff Vineyard. This is the most lifted and aromatic of the wines in this range. The 2013
is intensely saline, lifted and perfumed. It will appeal most to readers who enjoy aromatic,
mid-weight Pinots. The 2013 is all about precision and nuance. It is also a bit light, even
within the context of this style.
