This wine oozed of smoky rubber bands and offered little else. The body was light even for pinot, perhaps watery. Minimal fruit and tannic structure. whomever posted this wines price at 59.99 is confused because it reatails for $130 usd. I was unable to stomach more than a glass of this wine, beware.

We opened this to celebrate Barack Obama winning the presidential election, and were not disappointed.

Very Fruity and young. Must be decanted at least an hour if opened before 2009. Once decanted it opens up and is delicious.

Medium red. Intensely perfumed bouquet of spiced cherry, raspberry and blood orange, complicated by smoky minerals and fresh rose. Tangy, sharply focused red berry flavors are medium-bodied and refreshing, picking up a sweeter kirsch note with air. The blood orange quality returns on the long, juicy finish. Sexy and energetic wine-and much more sophisticated than some of this winery's pinot efforts just a few short years ago.

Shows a notable cola-sassafras character, with savory herb, dried blueberry and wild berry fruit that's pure, complex and persistent, ending with a nice loamy earth quality.

Smoky, savory dried berry, sage, cola and hints of anise and herb fold together in this sleek, trim, focused youngster.

Fresh, floral raspberry and black cherry scents are elegant and vibrant, picking up body, richness and depth, with intense blackberry and wild berry flavors on the long, persistent finish.

Bright red color. Ripe red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by clove, mace and cinnamon. Supple and round, with sweet red berry preserve flavors, soft tannins and building ripeness. Maintains admirable clarity on the long, juicy finish, which... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
