B. Kosuge Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir “Habitat” 2016 (750ml/12)
About B. Kosuge
Owner and winemaker Byron Kosuge spent the first fifteen years of his winemaking career in Saintsbury in Carneros. His time there established him as a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay specialist. After leaving Saintsbury in 2001, Byron assumed winemaking duties for several small projects, including Miura Vineyards – where he still consults – McIntyre Vineyard and Aiena Wines.
His own label, B. Kosuge Wines focuses on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay from several different sites in the ...
After a 3-day cold soak, the Pinot Noir warms up naturally over 3 more days to begin fermentation with native yeasts while retaining 50% whole cluster. Coming from Barlow Homestead Vineyard, this is organically farmed in cooler Northwest Sebastopol at 350 feet in elevation. The vines are planted at a high density with a low yield that translates to great energy in the bottle – a true standout.
