Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2007
Aromas of fresh cherry, bright strawberry, kirsch and a hint of rich brown spices and stone fruit offer a forward introduction. The first sip delivers a complex rush of flavors - rich raspberry, ripe Bing cherries and soft notes of cinnamon saturate and spread evenly around the palate. A slight hint of minerals, supported by soft tones of orange zest and sassafras are revealed through the silky finish. While the flavors are intense, it's abalanced and sexy wine.

Wine SpectatorFirm and spicy, with a pleasant mix of loamy earth, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's ripe yet restrained. Full-bodied, ending with tannins that give the flavors traction. Drink now through 2014.
