Facts of Note
Steve and Lynda Kanzler
former apple orchard
Back in 2002, Steve Kanzler believed in Kosta Browne enough to take a chance and sell us some of our first Pinot Noir. He then doubled down and became one of our early investors. At that time a largely unknown vineyard, Kanzler has gone on to become a jewel of the Sonoma Coast. A later-ripening site, the vineyard holds the cool weather longer than others we work with. This brings verve and edge to the character of the fruit, which keeps us coming back for more. The gently sloping vineyard is a former apple orchard, just outside the town of Sebastopol. Consisting of clones 115, 667 and Pommard, this vineyard delivers complexity, strength and, purity, along with wines exhibiting a sensuous mouth-feel.
Nose: Blackberry, raspberry, violets. Briary fruits.
Mouth: Black currant, wild berries, opulent fruit. Fig and sea salted caramel mid palate. Long and decadent finish.
