2007 Kosta Browne Kanzler Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 753 cases, $72. · Dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Penetrating and intoxicating aromas of dark stone fruits with a hint of strawberries and spice. The lush mouthful of black cherry and blackberry fruit is mouth coating but not jammy. Smoothly textured with fine-grain tannins and well-integrated alcohol. A fruitdriven wine from a special vineyard that is ready to drink now. POP 92, WS 95. Reviewed January 22, 2010
