This is the first bottling by Kutch from this AVA. Perhaps not quite the focus as the Santa Cruz mountain version but still quite nice. That may be to being a different vintage or AVA. This is golden in color. The nose has pears, slight vanilla, some lemon and a slightly sweaty note to it. On the palate, this is of course young. The pears and slight lemons come thru. Some acidity but not a lot. It will be good to revisit this and see if it comes more together. That said, it is delicious now with depth to it. Worked very well at the dinner table.
