Bright ruby-red. Highly expressive aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, cocoa powder and fresh rose. Silky and incisive on the palate, displaying superb energy and precision to its rich red fruit and floral pastille flavors. Conveys an impression of tension and energy and finishes with excellent length and lift.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard captures the energy and focus of this site in the Sonoma Coast appellation. There is an energy and drive to the Gap's Crown that is unique among the Kosta Browne Pinots. Cool, mineral infused notes and wild flowers add lift on the finish. The Gap's Crown was made with 10% whole clusters.

Trim and focused, with a spicy herbal edge to the dried berry, mineral, tar and cedar notes. Full-bodied, ending with a neatly tapered finish that ends on a fresh earthy, pebbly aftertaste.

The palate keeps the vibrancy of the red fruit on entry quickly fleshing out into a supple black fruit m�©lange mid-palate with graphite, kirsch and orange skins providing an intriguing counterpoint to the finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
