Kutch Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch 2011, 750mL (WA95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Kutch Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: US
Appellation: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County

WA95
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The highlight among these current and upcoming releases, Jamie Kutch-s 2011 Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch is drop-dead gorgeous. Savory herbs, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice all jump from the glass in this deep, layered wine. The 75% whole clusters come through only in the bouquet, as the fruit is so intense, they are barely noticeable on the palate. The balance of fruit, acidity and tannin is exceptional. I can`t wait to see how McDougall Ranch ages. It is clearly one of the most impressive wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateMore information from the Wine Advocate: `Jamie Kutch is one of the most thoughtful and introspective of California`s generation of young, emerging producers. Those qualities are serving him very well as the wines continue to move in the right direction. Overall, I find the 2011 Pinots a notch above the 2010s. In 2011 Kutch opted to use a higher percentage of whole clusters, an approach that has paid off in spades. Kutch also decided to bottle his 2011s a little earlier than normal, after 10 months in oak versus 18 for the 2010s, a move that seems to have preserved a measure of focus that has at times been missing in the wines. Sadly, 2011 is the last vintage for Kutch`s Savoy Pinot, but that site has been replaced by two new additions: Hirsch beginning in 2012 and Alder Springs in 2013. It will be fascinating to see where Jamie Kutch goes next. One thing is clear -- the road is wide open.`
