ABOUT THE WINE:

Kosta Browne Winery has never before and will never again offer this blend from such an iconic quartet of vineyards. Together, the Treehouse, Bootlegger’s Hill, Keefer Ranch, and Gap’s Crown vineyards combine to create the “Pacific Cuvée,” a one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir that truly celebrates the heritage of Sonoma County and the colossal influence of the Pacific Ocean.

Treehouse and Bootlegger’s Hill are located just above the silver fog of the Russian River Valley, while Keefer Ranch is nestled in the coolest part of the region. All are mere miles from the Pacific Ocean, which provides a cooling maritime influence, lengthening the growing season and promoting nuanced and evolved flavors. Gap’s Crown Vineyard is situated in the Sonoma Coast appellation, where afternoon wind and fog from the Pacific define the area. The vineyard’s slope and southwest-facing vines are planted to facilitate even sunlight exposure, ensuring the grapes gradually develop sugar and phenolic ripeness simultaneously.

Crafted in equal parts to highlight each vineyard’s distinct terroir, the lots were fermented in open-top concrete, stainless steel, and French oak vessels. The final blend of Pinot Noir is dynamic with brilliant bursts of red and black fruit, seamlessly integrated tannins, and impressive texture. From the exquisite intensity of the Treehouse Vineyard and vibrant energy of Bootlegger’s Hill to the refined elegance of Keefer Ranch and the balanced richness of Gap’s Crown, this wine is captivatingly radiant with the promise of many enchanting years to come.
