Steve and Lynda Kanzler
14% whole cluster
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 mouthfeel.
Nose: Blackberry, raspberry and violets. Briary fruits.
Mouth: Dark and rich fruit core of black currant and wild berries. The opulent fruit has more savory dried fruit highlights mid palate. Long and decadent finish.
