  • 2021 Kutch Pinot Noir Falstaff Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (2/19/2024)
    Pop and pour, and from the first moment this was a "wow" wine. Red fruit, a touch of spice, but not quite oak spice, and a mineral depth that carried from the entry through the finish made this one of the more enticing young Pinot Noirs I have ever had the pleasure to drink. It was interesting that I kept expecting the wine to gain more richness, but it always kept a level of tension that was like the wine was holding back. Even with that it was delicious for the three hours I followed it, and kept telling me that it has a lot more in store for the future, as it perfectly balanced fruit and tannic structure. Falstaff has always been my favorite Kutch wine, and is right there for favorite U.S. Pinot Noir.
