2010 Kosta Browne Koplen Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 780 cases, $78. · Medium deep purple color in the glass. Bright and alive in the glass with aromas of earthy dark raspberries, sassafras and spice. Intense, but not too intense flavors of dark red and black berries with an attractive sauvage character. Well-balanced tannins, very soft in the mouth, finishing with echoes of gorgeous fruit. Plenty of fireworks in the mouth. Reviewed July 23, 2012
