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.

Brought up mostly in French oak, with a small amount in concrete, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has that classic Sonoma Coast pretty red fruit-driven style as well as subtle white flower, spice, and even a kiss of minerality. It's beautifully balanced and medium-bodied, with an elegant, ethereal style that still has solid structure. It will drink well for a decade.
