142 | MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) Ne W Wo R l D : C A l IF o RNIA O ften described as Pinot-obsessed, Jamie Kutch has developed a portfolio that showcases Sonoma Coast terroir through the purity of Pinot Noir–wines that give a respectful nod to his love of Burgundy, while remaining completely unique and utterly enjoyable. He is also a believer in the benefits of whole-cluster fermentation and a truly minimalist philosophy, allowing each wine to express vintage character and the natural endowments of its fruit. In 2014, Jamie turned out a lineup of fruit-intense Pinots of amazing muscularity and class. Yet, we believe it is the m cDougall Ranch that came out ahead of the pack. At an elevation over 935 feet, m cDougall Ranch produces fruit of remarkable intensity and depth. The result is a dark, elegant and complex wine, yet poised like a clenched fist, and showing all the natural beauty of its cool-climate origins. ✦ Kutch Pinot Noir Mc d ougall Ranch 2014 VM 93 » $65 "...The richest and most intense... the most satisfying...all the elements are very nicely woven together." Antonio Galloni (1705284) T H e Pe RF e CT Mix: Vi NT a G e, L OC a T i ON & Wi N e M a K e R The 2014 vintage on the Sonoma coast will go down as one of the best in over five years. e ach Pinot Noir that we've tasted has been beautifully textured, showing a depth and intensity of fruit that is seldom seen. i t should come as no surprise that Jamie Kutch produced some of our favorite wines of the vintage.
