92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is bright, floral and beautifully perfumed, with all of the bright acids and energy of the year on display. In 2018, the Sonoma Coast is especially ethereal. The blend has a bit more Falstaff than in years past, a result of higher yields in that site. Sweet floral notes and a touch of whole cluster savoriness round things out. Drink: 2021-2033. (Apr 2020)"

91+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Pinot Noir 'Sonoma Coast' bottling from Jamie Kutch is a beautiful wine, with the wine a bit higher octane than customary, but hardly alarming, as it still clocks in at only 13.2 percent. The bouquet is just beautiful, wafting from the glass in a blend of cherries, strawberries, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones, a bit of sweet stems and a topnote of raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a lovely core of fruit, tangy acids, fine soil signature and a long, moderately tannic and perfectly balanced finish. This is made from declassified fruit from the single vineyard bottlings of MacDougal, Bohan and Falstaff vineyards, used one hundred percent whole clusters, was punched down by foot and saw all older casks during its eleven month elevage. Just a superb bottle in the making! 2024-2050. (Jan/Feb 2020)"

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lightly colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was not destemmed and was brought up all in neutral French oak. It would be a great introduction into the wines from Kutch and has lots of stem influence as well as ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, medium-bodied richness, plenty of underlying tannins, and outstanding length. It shows the more structured, savory, yet balanced style of this team beautifully. (5/21/20)"
