The 2020 Trout Gulch Vineyard chardonnay from Jamie Kutch was raised in twenty percent new oak in this vintage and comes in at an even thirteen percent octane. These vines were planted in 1977, so they are now over forty years of age- ancient by contemporary California standards. The wine is young and beautifully precise on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, apple, almond, white soil tones, spring flowers and a deft touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and nascently complex, with a good core, fine balance and grip and a long finish. This is a very nice bottle and a near miracle, given all of the challenges thrown up in the face of winegrowers in California in 2020. I normally like to age Jamie’s chardonnays several years before drinking them, but in 2020, I might be inclined to drink this wine in its relative youth, as one really has no idea how wines from this vintage are going to evolve in bottle. (Drink between 2022-2030)
