2009 Kutch Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch

Jamie Kutch's path to winemaking sounds too romantic to actually be true. In 2005, after years as an investment banker in New York, he realized that his heart was with wine. So together with his girlfriend (and now wife) Kristen Green, he moved to San Francisco to launch a career in wine.

With just a few years, Kutch was making some of the nation's most exciting Pinot Noir. Rajat Parr, the wine director of Michael Mina's Mina Group, has called Kutch one of the "the top five producers in America."

Kutch's 2009 McDougall Ranch Pinot Noir -- which is massively structured yet beautifully elegant -- is absolutely spectacular.
