Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2018

75cl / 14.5%

“Starting off the Pinot Noirs, the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was mostly destemmed and brought up in 31% new French oak.

Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a wonderful bouquet of black cherries, darker raspberry, spice, and hints of earth and forest floor.

It’s a darker, spicy Russian River Valley effort that’s medium to full-bodied and has terrific balance, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It shows the purity and class that now defines this estate.

It’s well worth seeking out and is going to keep for at least a decade.”

There are many differences between vineyards in this small appellation, but the majority of them do share a common influence – the cooling effect that follows the Russian River inland from the Pacific coast. The resulting fog helps keep nights cool and offers vines a respite from daytime temperatures. In turn, these diurnal temperature swings slow down ripening and promote more evolved flavors in our grapes

In 1997, Dan Kosta and Michael Browne founded Kosta Browne Winery. Their 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinor Noir won Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year Award in 2011.

Kosta Browne was known for highly extracted wines made from very sugar-rich, ripe grapes, starting with the 2002 and 2003 vintages.
