Kosta Browne Pinot Noir ‘Sta. Rita Hills’ 2020
Out of stock
The harvest of the grapes for 2020 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir ‘Sta. Rita Hills’ began two weeks earlier due to several heat spikes throughout the summer and extended an additional five weeks due to slow ripening conditions which led to high quality and character development of the grapes. Bursting with vibrant red fruit, baking spice, and an earthy core, this fascinatingly layered wine is delightfully unique.
NOSE An explosion of red fruit with an understated yet elegant savory quality. Nostalgic notes of cinnamon stick and clove mesmerize.
MOUTH Deeply rich with an earthy core and copious amounts of fruit. Refreshingly light on the palate with well-integrated tannins and unique flair.
