The San Francisco Chronicle’s Jon Bonné awarded our 2011 McDougall Ranch Pinot Noir as 1 of the top 100 wines of the year

2011 Kutch McDougall Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($59, 13.6%): This site on a ridge north of Cazadero provides Jamie Kutch and others with a remarkable intensity. Past some subtle oak tones lie the conifer and vibrant raspberry aspects that mark this part of the coast. It’s matched by rich lower tones and sarsaparilla warmth to the fruit.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

The Wine Advocate’s Antonio Galloni says McDougall Ranch 2011 is “clearly one of the most impressive wines of the vintage”

2011 Kutch McDougall Ranch Pinot Noir 95 pts. The highlight among these current and upcoming releases, Jamie Kutch’s 2011 Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch is drop-dead gorgeous. Savory herbs, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice all jump from the glass in this deep, layered wine. The 75% whole clusters come through only in the bouquet, as the fruit is so intense, they are barely noticeable on the palate. The balance of fruit, acidity and tannin is exceptional. I can’t wait to see how McDougall Ranch ages. It is clearly one of the most impressive wines of the vintage.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jay McInerney compares 2011 Kutch Sonoma Coast with Domaine Dujac

2011 Kutch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Very primary red-fruited nose which continues on the palate – A Punch & Judy show of dueling sweet and sour cherry flavors, complicated by an undertow of grape stems. Like a Dujac Morey-Saint-Denis.

2011 Kutch McDougall Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Dark purple color in the glass. Very aromatic with hi-tone purple berry and black cherry, exotic spice, confectionary and floral aromas. Full-bodied and intense, with gentle tannins and an attention-grabbing, long finish. Extraordinary.
