    May 2, 2022 - Kutch Grand Tasting Round 1; 4/25/2022-5/3/2022 (FMIII in the OC): Awesome - my WOTD for the Kutch tasting. First of all, not only is 2011 underrated as a vintage, it’s my favorite California vintage. An this might be my favorite of 2011, top 5 for sure.

    Looking like an older burg in the glass, light brick color. Aromas of cedar emanate from the glass. Very euro in its presence. Red berry fruit, primarily raspberry and light strawberry mid palate through the finish. Cedar hangs around to the end.

    May 1, 2022 - Kutch Verticals--Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (My House): Damn the 2011 is in a good place. I remember early on, when the wine was younger that the stems were more prominent but that has now worked its way into the wine much better. Pours a little cloudy, with brown spice and spicy cherry nose. Jolly Rancher hard candy note, juicy in tone with cinnamon and plenty of focused energy. I had held onto this bottle since 2013, and glass we got to enjoy it yesterday, as it's a good testament to Jamie's work in the early years.

    April 30, 2022 - Kutch Retrospective Sonoma County Chardonnay/Sonoma Cost Pinot Noir; 4/30/2022-5/1/2022 (FMII’s in San Juan Capistrano): Signature Kutch fruit, strawberry rhubarb, bing cherry, round palate of red berries, great acidity, fresh and juicy. Drinking fabulous.

    April 13, 2022 - Aromas of chilled raspberry and strawberry, pomegranate, with rose petals, white pepper and some herbal tea. The palate is crisp, elegant and airy with gorgeous cherry and raspberry fruit, some tangy cranberry and pomegranate -- the fruit is so, so pretty. Tart and zippy with dusty tannins and complex notes of mushroom broth, pine sap, cola, rhubarb, clove. Fun stuff, so bright and focused, but complex as well. Wasn't expecting this to hold up so darn well, but so glad I aged it.

    January 14, 2022 - All around lovely. The nose is brambly red fruit, beautiful. can also smell a "thonk" of sour amidst the aromatics or cherry, blackberry stems/leaves, some spice. Front is red fruits, dark cherry, drying black tea notes, herbal goodness, Its lighter in body than the glass presents. Bright acidity, well integrated, and effortless from front to back. Finish is a lingering mix of macerated cherries with black fruits, a touch of a sour "thonk" that resonates and echoes well down the stretch. A decade and still going strong, can drink now or hold and see. Doesn't seem to be struggling on any note. Enjoy if you have them.
