2006 Kosta Browne Koplen Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 724 cases, $68. A 5-acre vineyard planted to Dijon clone 667 on the east side of Olivet Lane. The location is one of the warmest for Kosta Browne and yields are generous. The grower is extremely passionate. 25% whole cluster. · Wild and fruity, brambly and earthy, with dark berries and chocolate carrying the flavor parade. Firm tannins. Noticeably, but discreetly concentrated. Reviewed July 19, 2008
