Tasting notes:
'This is made from the producer's several single-vineyard sites, including McDougall, Signal Ridge, Falstaff and Bohan. Concentrated flavors of black cherry and wild vanilla complement an earthy core of dried herb with an undeniable freshness on the midpalate and lengthy finish.' – Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

'The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is a pretty, appellation-level wine that is also a terrific introduction to these Pinots. A rush of dark red cherry and plum make a strong opening statement, with expressive floral/savory notes that add aromatic lift. Medium in body and impeccable in its balance, the 2016 is very nicely done. The Sonoma Coast is the hidden jewel in this range. Actually, it is not so hidden, rather it is pretty evident. Starting with 2016, the Sonoma Coast Pinot is a blend of declassified barrels taken from the vineyard designated wines and no longer includes fruit from Campbell Ranch and Sonoma Stage that was previously purchased just for this wine.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 92/100

About Kutch Wines:
Kutch Wines, located in California, was started by Jamie Kutch in 2005. Jamie has become known to push the boundaries for Pinot Noir and Decanter describes Kutch Wines as ‘one of the top producers of elegant, new-style California Pinot Noir.’ Kutch Wines follow a minimalist philosophy in order to provide the purest expression of a wine from a particular place and time. All punch-downs are done by foot and upon completion of fermentation, the wine is gravity-flowed into French oak barrels, where they remain unmoved while aging on the fine lees.
