Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The blend for our 2003 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is classic Russian River Valley with a luscious mouth-watering palate and deep, focused flavors. The final blend is made up of 5 vineyards from the middle to upper reaches of the Russian River Valley: Amber Ridge, Koplen, Cohn, Dutton-Manzana and Tykanera. The clones are blend of Dijon clones 667, 115, old Dijon and Pommard. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels (44% new oak) for 17 months. Aromatics Rich, black cherry, ripe raspberry and cool, blue fruits are laced with milk chocolate, vanilla and hints of white pepper. On The Palate Forward raspberry and cherries jubilee are complemented with dark, chewy stone fruit and a complex, silky, ripe mouth-feel that finishes long and clean with plum and lavender. This is deeply concentration yet extremely well balanced and precise. While this is drinking extremely well right now, we believe this will continue to improve and drink well for over the next 5-7 years.

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
