Extremely limited Kosta Browne 2018 Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir.
95 Points 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."
Sta. Rita Hill’s 2018 growing season was long and provided ripe stems which allowed us to incorporate more whole cluster within our smaller lots. This technique provided structure and depth to the vibrant fruit profile. This wine is focused, with bright strawberry and cherry notes and a subtle, pleasing tension
