Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
This richly tight, layered and intense coastal wine combines grapes from several amazing sites, including Kanzler, Gap's Crown and Jenkins. Savory freshness defines it, with mineral, forest and tea at the forefront of the structured palate and accents of nutmeg and cardamom lingering on the finish.
Brought up mostly in French oak, with a small amount in concrete, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has that classic Sonoma Coast pretty red fruit-driven style as well as subtle white flower, spice, and even a kiss of minerality. It's beautifully balanced and medium-bodied, with an elegant, ethereal style that still has solid structure. It will drink well for a decade.
There's fleshy richness to the plum paste and dark cherry flavors in this red, with hints of tapenade. The firm finish is savory and well-structured, with chocolate nib accents. Drink now through 2025. 6,709 cases made.
