Marsanne white. Moon Mountain Dist. What a nice painting on the label. Poster art vibes. Lovely pale, golden color. Smells like fresh paint, flowers and lighter colored apples. Gala or Jonagold. Flavors are complex and crunchy. Lots of anise, bit of artemisia. Has hints of honey and stone-fruits. The body and bite are tremendous. ‘Big’ white wine. The balancing bitter streak is nice. This is a unique CA wine with some distinct old world style. — a month ago

It was wonderful to visit the @kostabrownewinery facilities in #sebastapol today.
🍷 We sipped on the 2017 One Sixteen Chardonnay, the 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, and the 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. We had a tour of the facilities, taking in the stainless steel, concrete, and oak vessels where wines are fermented.
Loved learning about the founders Dan Kosta and Michael Browne, also Chris Costello, the three of whom carried Kosta Browne to critical acclaim, earning Wine Spectator’s “wine of the year” award for the 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.
The founders have since sold KB to @duckhornwine and the passion to produce exceptional wines continues with this label.
We also tasted a Champagne emblematic of what’s to come from KB under Julien Howsepian @jhowsepian
the current head winemaker. 🥂
We’re excited to taste this sparkling wine once available 🙌🙌
