Kosta Browne - Russian River Valley - Pinot Noir
Overview: Most vineyards in the Russian River Valley share a common influence – the cooling effect that follows the river inland from the Pacific coast. The resulting fog helps keep the vines cool at night, offering a respite from the daytime heat. These diurnal temperature swings slow-ripen and promote nuanced flavors in the grapes.
Over the years, we've been fortunate to work with several terrific sites within this AVA that span a diverse and varied view which many would call the heartland of California Pinot Noir. This year, we've included eight exceptional vineyards, including one from our Estate series and three of our Single Vineyard designates. Captivating aromatics with pronounced blackberry, ripe red cherry, and raspberry evolve from the glass, creating a truly mesmerizing, multi-layered wine with a remarkable finish.
Tasting Notes: Enchanting aromatics delight with pronounced blackberry and layers of ripe red cherry and raspberry. The palate is silky smooth with delicate tension and a remarkable finish
Pairing: Grilled Quail, Crispy Duck Pancakes, Char Siu Pork
