The 2012 Pinot Noir Treehouse Vineyard has turned out beautifully. Deep, rich and layered in the glass, the 2012 possesses striking depth in its dark red toned fruit. Bright veins of acidity support the explosive fruit in a delineated, nuanced Pinot full of personality. This exuberant Pinot should continue to drink beautifully for the better part of a decade.

 Made by the team at Kosta Brown, the 2012 Pinot Noir Treehouse Vineyard comes from iron-rich, red soils and vines at an elevation of 750 feet. It's a beautiful Pinot Noir that offers up classy cassis, liquid flowers, rose petal and ground herbs in its gorgeously textured, layered, and vibrant personality. I love the core of sweet fruit here, and it has integrated acidity and a terrific finish. Hard to resist now, it will evolve nicely for upward of a decade. (JD) (10/2014)

 Vivid ruby. Intense raspberry and candied rose scents are complemented by deeper notes of licorice and cola. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering sweet dark berry flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Round and inviting Pinot, with slow-building tannins coming in late and adding shape and grip to the strikingly long, fruit-driven finish. Showing more structure and density than most of the Kosta-Browne 2012s and definitely built for aging. (ST)  (5/2014)

Pure and tight, with vivid plum, cherry and raspberry fruit. This is elegant, refreshing and lively, adding a dash of anise and ending with a clean, snappy fruit vitality. (JL) (9/2014)
