“As good as it gets. These wines
reach the peak of my personal
scale of quality.” 96 POINTS
~ Jeb Dunnuck

From Jeb Dunnuck, “Moving to the two reds, the appellation 2017 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals a ruby/purple, translucent color as well as a stunning perfume of black raspberries, cassis, crushed violets, spice box, sweet earth. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, has beautiful depth, a kiss of background oak, and a great finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 17 months in 40% new French oak, it’s a brilliant wine to drink over the coming decade or more.” Jeb Dunnuck 96 POINTS

Kosta Brown Winery Notes: “The Sonoma Coast appellation overlaps with that of the Russian River Valley in many places and is similarly shaped by the ocean. Local geology can be complex here, a direct result of being located on the intersection of two tectonic plates. For this wine, we find ourselves drawn to vineyards that are particularly influenced by the Pacific Ocean and are fortunate to work with some spectacular sites. Together, they form a singular wine that is distinctively Sonoma Coast…

The vineyards we source from lie in both the southern portion of the appellation and in the northern true coastal zone. In the southern area, the Petaluma Wind Gap and the San Pablo Bay drive cooler temperatures and provide us with deep flavors and richly textured wines. The vineyards from the coastal reaches contribute more of the savory and spice characteristics that we love as well as great structure and poise. In our second year working with the fruit, Marshall Ranch, in Sebastopol, again proved to be an excellent cornerstone for our Sonoma Coast blend, offering vibrant fruit, crisp color and racy, grounded acidity. Nose: Forest floor, with blackberry, Bing cherry and bramble fruits. A hint of Rosemary. Mouth: Thoughtful and focused. Intense dark fruits with notes of blackberry and blueberry.”
