Red Pinot Noir
Producer Notes

Kosta-Browne started its supersonic trek to celebrity status in 1997, when pals Dan Kosta and Michael Browne pooled their restaurant tips and purchased a half ton of Pinot Noir, a manual crusher-de-stemmer and a used barrel.

Fresh, bright, ripe black cherry, raspberry and light floral scents lead off in this supple, fleshy, full-bodied red, which is complex and layered on the palate, maintaining its core fruitiness and gaining subtle touches of dark berry and spice. Drink now through 2018.

Aromatics: Layers of rich, warm spices co-mingle with the red and dark fresh fruit components of red raspberry, crushed ripe cherries and a hint of fresh blackberry. On the palate: This Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is pure, balanced, lush and focused. Bright, yet rich cherries are on the forefront with fresh ripe raspberries, pomegranate and a hint of strawberry developing throughout the palate, which rest generously on the top of the tongue. The lingering finish wraps around your tongue and palate with focus and freshness.
