Kutch Savoy Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard (aged completely in neutral oak) exhibits a dark ruby color along with a sweet kiss of raspberries, blueberries, spring flowers and subtle earth and spice, good acidity, nice texture and purity, and an elegant, graceful, well-balanced mouthfeel and finish. It will benefit from several years of bottle age and should keep for a decade...90-93" WA 02/11 "Outstanding: A more restrained and more densely fruited nose speaks of pure, ripe and notably more complex aromas of plum and red cherry. There is excellent richness and fine volume to the medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that coats the mouth as well as buffers the firm tannins on the impressively long and impeccably well-balanced finish. Good stuff here...91" BH 11/11 "Bright ruby-red. High-pitched red berries and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of cola, dried rose and minerals. Lively, focused and sweet, offering strawberry and raspberry flavors and an appealingly silky texture. The precise, energetic finish leaves notes of raspberry and candied flowers behind...90" IWC 05/11

In the pursuit of trying to create the highest quality balanced wines possible, the old saying goes, "wine is made in the vineyard." Following that philosophy, we strive to use well positioned, cold climate sites, having appropriate soils. It has been a challenge to locate and secure such sites, causing our production to grow at a slow but steady pace. Once the fruit is harvested, it is handled with (he utmost care, sorted meticulously and moved only by gravity. We attempt to pursue a minimalist philosophy, trying to provide the purest expression of Pinot Noir from a particular place and time, taking great care not to over-manipulate our wines in the cellar. This minimal interventionalist style of winemaking is reflected in our use of indigenous yeast, minimal acid adjustments, with absence of adding any color enhancing agents. All punch-downs are literally done by the bare hand or by feet. We ferment using only small lots and bulk out our press wine. Using only free-run juice seems to add a note of elegance to our Pinots. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine is gravity flowed into French oak barrels, where they remain unmoved while aging sur lie. The wines are never racked until we are ready to bottle, nearly 16 months after harvest. At Kutch, our wines are allowed to express all of the natural greatness of their vineyard origins. Read less
