Rutz Cellars Owner Keith Rutz crafts Pinot Noir in the style and flavor of the great Burgundies of Vosne-Romanee and Chambolle-Musigny. His unique winery in Sebastopol is housed in a 5,000 square foot extending 300 feet into a hillside.
Rutz Cellars produces several other Pinot Noirs including two blends - French Cuvee and Sonoma Cuvee - as well as vineyard-designates including Windsor Gardens, Dutton Ranch and Burnside. The wines are sold on the website. The caves and winery are located at 3637 Frei Road, Sebastopol. 415-482-6565. Tours and tastings by appointment. In early 2008 the property was for sale.

2005 Rutz Cellars Maison Grand Cru Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $35. · Very light in color. The nose is quite charming exhibiting crushed strawberries, exotic woods, spice and a floral lift. A very elegant wine with delicate red Pinot fruits with oak accents. This is a wine for those who prefer the feminine side of Pinot Noir. Reviewed January 20, 2008 ARTICLE »
