Pinot Of the Day (POD)

Here are a few Pinots I have tried recently. Hope you enjoy my tasting notes. You can find @Melvin on Vivino.


Kosta Brown Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

— — — — — — — — — — — — — —

4.5 Garnet hue. Blackberry, Earthy, wet leaves, followed by a tart palate. Acidity with age nicely and break down heavy meats. Dry, but fruity. Raspberries, cocoa, green pepper. A little brambly, with what the Duckhorn rep Ian Merris described as “cherry cola”. Definitely earthy with a balsamic aftertaste. You can make out a faint green tea green tea aroma in the backdrop. Definitely a long and intense wine tasting experience. If anyone can get me cases of this stuff for a reasonable price lmk(🙏).
