The Kanzler Family
25% 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 a 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: Extremely perfumed and floral with rose, blueberry and stone.
Mouth: Full body, yet agile and exciting. Salty. Will fill in with age if you give it the chance.
