2018 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills
Winemaker Notes: Nose: Bright fruits highlighted by fresh strawberry, red cherry, and cranberry, accentuated by fresh basil and a hint of pot de crème.
Mouth: Focused, linear entry, with a subtle yet excellent tension.
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2018 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills was 90% destemmed and brought up in mostly neutral oak (French and Austrian). Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a beautiful bouquet of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruits interwoven with plenty of spice, flowery incense, and violet nuances. Ethereal, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, it has a terrific sense of balance, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's not a blockbuster Pinot by any measure yet has complexity, balance, and length. I'm a big fan."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2018 Kosta Browne Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is stylish, well-balanced, and a food-lovers' dream. This wine shows aromas and flavors of bright cranberries and strawberries. Enjoy it with grilled, wild salmon fillets."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is a lovely wine whose aromas open gently to crushed strawberries and raspberries, tea leaves, dried orange peel and rose petals. The palate is light to medium-bodied, juicy, elegant and perfumed, with a very long, elegant finish and satiny texture."
