Kosta Browne Treehouse Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
From a great site in the Russian River Valley and just about all destemmed and aged 16 months in 55% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Treehouse Vineyard reveals a slightly deeper ruby/purple hue as well as more black cherry and slightly darker fruits that give way to more spice, violet, bouquet garni, and white flower notes with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied and balanced, with ripe tannins and a classic Burgundian style, it's another stunning Pinot Noir from this estate that can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade.
Powerful, lusciously spiced and contoured, with well-honed underbrush and cedary spice accents to the dried red fruit and berry flavors. The rich finish features toasty notes. Drink now through 2026. 1,600 cases made.
Aged 16 months in 31% new French and 3% new Austrian oak, the medium ruby-purple colored 2017 Pinot Noir Treehouse Vineyard opens with a youthful framing of oak spices, giving up spiced red cherries and berries, potpourri, violet and an earthy streak. The palate is medium to full-bodied and powerfully flavored, with loads of spiced red and black fruits and earthy touches framed by finely grained tannins, finishing long and lifted. 1,250 cases produced. Drink Date: 2020-2027.
