The 2021 Soberanes Pinot Noir is typical of Pinot Noir from a premier vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. It is medium-full bodied wine with ripe cherry and red rose petals and a background of spice from the barrel aging. The balance between the boldness of the clone and the coyness of the varietal make for an enticing wine.
100% Pinot Noir. 4-day cold soak, 50 hL Taransaud French Oak tank. 50% new French oak barrels. 13 months. 195 cases. Winemakers: Patrick and Cole Krutz
Krutz Family Cellars was founded in summer of 2003 in Monterey County when Patrick Krutz produced sixty cases of wine. The idea was to purchase a ton of grapes a year in order to produce a small amount of wine for family and friends. However, demand soon changed that plan and Krutz Family Cellars continues to grow in an effort to supply that demand. In 2011 Bryan and Cole Krutz joined their brother Patrick as owners and Krutz Family Cellars is now a family owned winery located in Sonoma County.
Our KRUTZ wines are built with one purpose, build the best. This starts in the vineyards where we have full control of our various KRUTZ blocks. This includes, but not limited to, farming practices, yield control, irrigation calls, and night time harvest dates. Once the fruit is received, we cut no corners. Hand sorting, whole berry integrity, new Taransaud French Oak fermenters, and gravity-fed, Free Run Only Wine (no press fractions) straight to the finest French Oak barrels on the market are just some of the critical core components to making the best wine possible.
