We love this because...

This is the richer and slightly more dark fruited of the two single vineyard wines from Kutch. The McDougall single vineyard Pinot has real depth of fruit combined with a savoury, smoky note from the barrel aging and tannins that have smoothed out beautifully over its time in bottle.

The wine

McDougall Ranch is one of Jamie’s longstanding sites and is located at over 300m altitude and just 3.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean on a south facing ridge with views over towards Hirsch vineyard. Despite undergoing similar vinification there is a real individual character to the single vineyard wines; I tend to find Falstaff as typified by its tension and energy McDougall Ranch tends towards a touch more richness and structure. More bass than treble if you want a music metaphor and more Gevrey than Chambolle if we are reaching for a Burgundy comparison.

This lends it to working well with more oak in the mix which adds a smokiness to the finished wine creating the richest of the Kutch wines. As ever Jamie's relentless focus on freshness shines through with the inclusion of whole clusters in the ferment ensuring the tannins have a bright, dynamic structure.
