Pinot Noir ‘Keefer Ranch’, Kosta Browne Winery

The 20 acre plot was planted in 1996 on its goldridge fine sandy loam. This Estate vineyard lies within Green Valley, in the southwestern corner of the Russian River Valley. Here, gently rolling hills harbor some of the coolest conditions within the appellation – fog, breezes and fresh nights help vines balance their ripening with warm afternoon sunshine. A heralded property, Keefer has been in the Kosta Browne family since 2005 and we are drawn to the terrific natural acidity and elegance we find in the grapes we farm here. Classic Goldridge soils offer Pinot Noir an ideal home.

Review:
The 2016 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch is a very pretty wine for any reasons. Creamy and generous, but in the style that characterizes these wines today, the Keefer is very nicely balanced. Expressive floral and savory notes add lift to this pretty, restrained Pinot from Kosta Browne.
