Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
The 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was aged in 44% new French oak, 16% concrete tank and 2% wood tanks, ranging from 10-15 months depending on the vessel. Medium ruby, it's scented of cranberry sauce, woodsmoke, loamy earth and forest floor with a core of red and black cherries and berries plus notions of pencil shavings and licorice. Light to medium-bodied and broody in the mouth, it has a sturdy, pleasantly chalky frame with seamlessly woven freshness to lift the earth-laced finish. 8,500 cases produced.
Plump and generous up front, with elegant plum, raspberry and wild berry notes, slowly building depth and dimension on the finish, where the flavors linger. Drink now through 2024. 8,500 cases made.
