Kosta Browne Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020
|California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills
Snappy red-cherry aromas meet with tarragon and other fresh garden herbs on the nose of this appellation bottling. The palate is vibrant and fresh with red fruit as well as prominent spices like mace and cinnamon, but that minty tarragon tone is what ups the uniquely delicious quotient.
Very alluring, with damson plum, griotte and mulberry fruit seamlessly layered with black tea, sous-bois and sandalwood. The long, refined finish lets all the perfume linger prettily. Drink now through 2029. 4,800 cases made.
The 2020 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has slowly opening, slightly muddled scents of blueberries, blackberries, licorice and underbrush. The light-bodied palate is delicate and juicy with slightly rustic tannins and a simple finish.
