Kosta Browne Gap's Crown Vyd. Pinot Noir Very Lightly Scuffed Label 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Connoisseurs' Guide: This compelling wine earns top honors among this year's outstanding collection of Kosta Browne Pinot Noirs by dint of the extra complexity and layering that accompanies its precise, wonderfully pure varietal fruit. Its starts out with lovely aromas of ripe cherries, toast and sweet smoke, and its rich but ever-buoyant flavors deepen and gain in richness en route to a amazingly long finish. As supple and inviting as it may be at the moment, the wine is so keenly composed and well-structured that it should continue to evolve and reveal even more a half-dozen years hence. (Oct 2012)

Flavorful, intense wines - that is our goal. We believe every wine should be bursting with flavor. This intensity should be part of a greater balance. We find that each of our vineyards has its own "sweet spot" of balance. It is our charge to guide each vineyard to its optimum flavor potential. Our single vineyard wines are blended to express the specific qualities and consistencies of our pedigreed vineyards. Pinot Noir is the perfect palate to define the terroir of these plantings. We offer two appellation wines: our Sonoma Coast and Russian River. These wines are blended to represent the best of our vineyards in each specific appellation. Quality is of utmost importance with these blends. Read less
