2010 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 768 cases, $58. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Uplifting aromas of dark red raspberries and cassis. Impressive mid palate attack of dark red and black raspberry flavors with complimentary oak in the background. Relatively light in weight for a Kosta Browne wine, but picks up flavor intensity over time in the glass, and taking on an appealing heft the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. A refreshing riff of acidity on the finish makes for easy drinking. Very good. Reviewed July 23, 2012
