2009 Kosta Browne Rosella’s Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 272 cases, $72. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Perfumed with aromas of spice dark red fruits, wilted roses, hard red candy and redwood. Discreetly concentrated flavors of red cherries, pomegranates, brown spice and graham. Soft in the mouth and lighter weighted than the other Santa Lucia Highlands offerings. A bit exotic and unusual in its flavor profile and quite different from the 08 version. Good (+). Reviewed August 13, 2011
