Vinous | Rating: 88Kosta Browne's 2015 Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands) is soft, delicate and open-knit, with lovely bright red fruit and attractive floral overtones. Medium in body and gracious, the 2015 is a pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. The tannins are a bit aggressive, but otherwise the 2015 is very good. The Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot is a blend of fruit from Sierra Mar and Soberanes.Author: Antonio Galloni
