Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2011
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine AdvocateOffering up a supple, perfumed and delicate array of kirsch, crushed berries, spice and forest floor, the 2011 Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands) flows onto the palate with a light, deft texture, bright acidity and a clean, nicely focused finish. This isn't a heavy weight and excels on its aromatics and balance more than power or richness. Enjoy it over the coming 4-6 years. Drink now-2019.
Wine SpectatorGutsy, showing tannic muscle, this offers tidbits of dark berry, with grainy, gripping tannins and notes of cedar and crushed rock. Complete, but should improve with cellaring. Drink now through 2022. 1,693 cases made.
