Kosta Browne is one of the biggest names in Pinot Noir, an iconic style that defines an era of California Pinot Noir. 90% of their wines are sold directly through the winery. We are proud to get our allocation, and fight hard to get enough for you. Sourced from vineyards in the southern part of Sonoma Coast near the Petaluma Wind Gap and the San Pablo Bay. The cool Pacific Ocean breezes give this wine rich texture. Black raspberries, cassis, and crushed violets swirl on the nose and palate, the finish is light sweet earth and spice box denouement. Satisfyingly delicious.

Moving to the two reds, the appellation 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals a ruby/purple, translucent color as well as a stunning perfume of black raspberries, cassis, crushed violets, spice box, sweet earth. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, has beautiful depth, a kiss of background oak, and a great finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 17 months in 40% new French oak, it's a brilliant wine to drink over the coming decade or more.
