  • 2017 Kutch Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (3/13/2019)
    Pobegad from FEDEX man. Gone in less than an hour. Bright Strawberry leads on the nose and palate. Strawberry and tart cherry bounce around on the palate with this playful joy. Great acidity and med finish. Delicious stuff that's quite unique. It doesn't really remind me of anything else in California and its not Oregonian or Burgundian. To me, it's distinctly Kutch. Certainly, wishing I had bought more than a few bottles. Won't make that mistake again. Good QPR for California pinot. Still a bit pricey compared my favorites from Oregon but this wine its just delicious. This is top tier California pinot that delivers. Its not quite as complex or stemmy as some of the SVD's but its fantastic right out of the gate. (92 pts.)

It's likely easy to fix your mistake. Email Jamie and ask to buy more. You are practically neighbors.

It showed very well in a crowded field at Falltacular too.

The 2017s overall will be excellent wines IMO. Oddly though, I still don't have any comment on the 2017 SC, as even with visiting Jamie last July, and with Falltacular last month when J Web was here, and he tasted the wine, I missed tasting the SC. ####. I had the Dougie and Staff, but not the SC.

Sean, you have the only note in CT so good on you for taking the first dip and posting on it. Like Andrew said, just call Jamie and ask for more. The worst he can do is say No, but for someone who likes the wine, you'd think he'd offer you a little more so you can have more to enjoy.
My WOTY candidates for 2019:
2014 Marie Courtin Champagne Eloquence Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut

My best wines of 2018:
2017 Kutch Falstaff Sonoma Coast PN
2012 Marguet Père et Fils Champagne La Grande Ruelle Ambonnay

Kindness matters.

Yes, I'm excited to taste the Trout Gulch as well. Had the Alfaro Estate recently and it's quite good especially for the price, Ceritas just showed up the other day as well but haven't dipped into that quite yet.
