Facts of Note
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 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: 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.
