2016 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir | Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County California 750ml

A step up over the Russian River blend, the 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast offers more red fruits, raspberries, flowers, and rose petal notes, with a pinewood/forest floor character developing with time in the glass. This medium-bodied, silky, elegant Pinot Noir has a terrific sense of minerality, integrated acidity, and a complex, nuanced style that's going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years. | 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

Baked mixed berries with hints of cacao nibs and raw black currants. Herbs de Provence and forest floor shine through. Loganberries and Santa Rosa Plums are electric on the palate. Silky tannins for a long, smooth finish. Vineyard sources: Bootlegger's Hill, Balleto Watertrough, Burnside Balleto, Freestone Pasterale, Freestone Quarter Moon, Gap's Crown, Kanzler, Marshall, Thorn Ridge, Sexton. | Kosta Browne

Each vintage, Kosta Browne showcases the character of Pinot Noir across California in a collection of appellation-specific blends. An earnest expression of the place reveals the shape of each wine. Crisp red fruit, freshness, and precision mark the Sonoma Coast blend that includes fruit from Gap's Crown, Kanzler, and Griffin's Lair vineyards. The Russian River Valley blend has that hallmark texture with a full mouthfeel and a broad palate of ripe raspberry, cherry, and pomegranate. An abstract playfulness runs wild through the Santa Lucia Highlands blend where five vineyard sources - all farmed by the infamous Garys (Pisoni & Franscioni) - contribute savory game flavors, whiffs of olives and dried fruits to a deeply structured wine. Each is unique and full of character with a sure sense of identity. |Falling Bright
