2009 Kosta Browne Gap’s Crown Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 148 cases, $72. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. Nicely perfumed with scents of dark cherries and raspberries, spice and rose petals. Moderately intense flavors of plum sauce and black raspberries with an earthy underpinning, finishing with some oak and pomegranate highlights. Mild, supple tannins, bright acidity and some persistence on the finish. A solid wine, but just doesn’t deliver the flavor interest for me. Good (+). Reviewed August 13, 2011
