August West is a new Pinot Noir producer and the 2003s mark their first vintage. The wines are made at Kosta Browne?s winery in western Sonoma County. From barrel, the wine already is very forward with clean red fruit (strawberry) and slight new oak aromas. Good acidity nicely frames considerable juicy fruit on the palate before finishing with attractive light oak shadings. The antithesis of a vin de garde style but will provide fun early drinking when released.
