Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2006
Aromatics: Complex and enticing. Ripe black cherry, lush blackberry with earthy undertones of mushroom, smoke, and a dusting of cocoa. On the palate: A true expression of Sonoma Coast, the 2006 vintage is deep and exotic with layers of ripe black and red fruit and a touch of pie crust. This dense wine fills the palate and yet exhibits hints of minerality, with a lengthy finish. The intense flavors of blackberry, green tea and earthy notes are a prelude to a very long, elegant finish.
Wine SpectatorOffers a pretty burst of ripe plum and black cherry fruit to accompany the herb, sage, dusty berry and loamy earth flavors. Ends with a complex aftertaste and hints of anise and toasty oak. Drink now through 2011.
