2009 Kosta Browne Pisoni Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 142 cases, $72. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Subdued aromas of dark red and black fruits with a hint of seasoned oak. Discreetly concentrated array of dark red fruits which are monolithic at present but suggest an intensity waiting to get out. Smoothly textured with firm but supple tannins for aging. Hard to judge this wine at this stage as it has a long way to go to reveal itself, but I predict greatness over time. Patience advised. Very Good. Reviewed August 13, 2011
