Lighter and fresher than the '15 a hint of that candy from the '16 McDougall. I wonder if there is any in the blend.

Tonight's wine is a Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. I picked this up a couple days ago and was excited to try it. I had heard a lot about Kutch wines over the last few months and wanted to know what all the hub bub was about. Jamie Kutch is the winemaker and his first vintage was a 2005 Pinot. Jamie used to be a stock trader from NYC on the NASDAQ working for Merrill Lynch. He traded in everything to move west bitten by the wine bug and to make Pinot Noir. He was mentored by Michael Browne of Kosta Browne fame and the rest is history.

The nose on this Pinot is very expressive of good fruit with notes of plum, cherry, raspberry, ,menthol, clove and a musty earthy forest floor.

The palate doesn't disappoint with a touch of sweetness, red cherry, black raspberry, plum, clove and a touch of oak.

Even though this is a California Pinot it is not the normal big Pinot with dark fruit. This has an earthy soil texture with medium + mouth watering acidity and medium smooth fine tannins. A nice Pinot Noir and I can understand why there is a lot of talk about this winery.

Fresh herbs and black cherry. Great balance all around. Acid subtle but generous. Perfumed finish. Another well executed bottle of pinot noir. Delightful.

2014. Juicy deliciosity. Complex aromas and flavors of fruit, spice, and bits of earth. A few years ago Jamie described this as a M-Tu-W wine. Well, it's rocking on Sunday that's for sure!
