2006 Kosta Browne 4-Barrel California Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 101 cases, $68. This is a selection of barrels that work together well and varies with each vintage. The California appellation designation frees Michael to choose from all of his fruit. This wine consists of 1 barrel each of Rosella’s, Kanzler, Gap’s Crown, and Miron vineyards. · When you stick your nose in this one, the hair stands up on the back of your neck. Cherries, strawberries, rhubarb pie, cola, root beer and several things I can’t describe. The palate is rich, round, mature and sweet. Very pleasing and a wine to contemplate. For hedonists only.
