KRUTZ FAMILY 2011 PINOT NOIR "SOBERANES" SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 750mL

Owner and winemaker Patrick Krutz hails from Mississippi, but moved to Carmel to work at the Cheese Shop and follow his dream of getting in to the wine business. The winery was founded in 2003 with his brothers.

The Soberanes Vineyard is the latest exciting joint venture between the Pisoni and Franscioni Families. The site features tightly spaced vines and is planted to 33 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah and sits on the Santa Lucia Highlands Bench adjacent to the Garys' Vineyard. The clonal material planted in the loamy, rocky soil is very diverse and features over a dozen of the most renowned heritage selections from California and Burgundy in pursuit of the finest wine quality.

What this vineyard captures, more so than any other Pinot Noir site that we have tasted, is both power and elegance. Bright and forceful Bing cherries and dark berries along with the slightest hue of roasted coffee bean on the nose. Immediate and broad textured tannins cover the palate as flavors of black raspberries, licorice and black tea leaves unravel. Oak-inspired overtones of crispy charred marshmellows and fall spice with balance acids elongate a finish that reverbs for hours.
