B. Kosuge Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard 2016 (750ml/2)
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 30% whole cluster. Hirsch Vineyards is biodynamically farmed on wide variety of soils with most of the grapes in this wine grown on fractured sandstone and clay. 2016 was a very good vintage for both high volume and high quality yields in the vineyard.
