There are many differences between vineyards in this small appellation, but most of them do share a common influence – the cooling effect that follows the Russian River inland from the Pacific coast. The resulting fog helps keep nights cool and offers vines a respite from daytime temperatures. In turn, these diurnal temperature swings slow down ripening and promote more evolved flavors in Pinot Noir grapes. Kosta Browne works with vineyards that span a diverse and varied view into a region that many would call the heartland of California Pinot Noir. Ripe summer fruits; blueberries, raspberries and cranberries fill the glass with intensity, bright acidity and a satisfying mouthfeel.
