Red Table Wine
The Sonoma Coast appellation overlaps with the Russian River Valley in many places – both are shaped by the ocean. Local geology can be complex, a result of being located at the intersection of two tectonic plates. For this wine, Kosta Browne specifically chooses fruit from vineyards directly influenced by the Pacific Ocean for a perspective that is distinctly Sonoma Coast.
Traditional and non-traditional techniques are used to make a consistently precise and textural wine: Fermented in stainless steel and concrete, then matured in new and old French oak and concrete.
Thanks to cooler sites and long hang time on the vine, you can expect a Pinot with beautifully developed velvety tannins and a dark, rich fruit profile. Notes of blackberry and raspberry with great depth and a long finish.
“The 2021 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was matured in 39% new oak for 15 months. The nose opens slowly from allspice and brown sugar to a core of red cherry and cranberry, tea leaves and lavender. The medium-bodied palate offers surprisingly concentrated fruit supported by grainy tannins and seamless freshness, and it has a long, spicy finish.”
