2011 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., pH 3.59, TA 0.58, 5,004 cases, $58. Sourced from Gap’s Crown, Terra de Promissio and Walala vineyards. Aged 16 months in 49% new French oak barrels. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Earth-bound aromas of forest floor and wild forest berries with a hint of oak. Middleweight flavors are striking in character, featuring strawberries, raspberries and a hint of mocha. Reserved tannins with good acid tension, finishing with a flourish of fresh berry flavor on the finish. I like the restraint and modesty in this wine. Very good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
