This Pinot from Jamie Kutch comes from Bohan Ranch, the first modem vineyard planted on the Sonoma Coast in 1972. The 44 year old vines drive deep in to the Yorkville Laughlin soil to create more rustic style wines.
McDougall Ranch is a unique, cool climate site; the vineyard beautifully expresses varietal correctness. "Great style and shape - this wine has the clarity of modern fruit with the savoury terroir of Burgundy", Jancis Robinson.
Kutch is one of the metonymies of Pinot Noirs’s perfection in California. This young estate encourages their grapes to express their natural greatness. This vineyard lies up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, not far from Rhys Horseshoe and Alpine Vineyards.
