Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011
International Wine CellarVivid red. Sexy, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of candied red berries, vanilla and rose pastille. Juicy and expansive, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of star anise. Very fresh, with excellent finishing clarity and sneaky tannins. There's "a lot of Gap's Crown" fruit in here, according to Browne.
Wine SpectatorFresh and vibrant, tight and well-balanced, with zesty, snappy raspberry and wild berry notes, this gains richness and depth on the licorice-accented finish. Drink now through 2020. 5,004 cases made.
