Today’s offer is as rare as the wines it contains. Highly allocated Pinot Noirs fly off the shelves at Binny’s, making today's wine offer a rare opportunity Pinot lovers should jump on. We are mining a vein of vinous gems that display the cut, color and clarity that speak of rare quality. The ruby colored Pinots below are from the greatest cool climate terroirs on the California coast from Sonoma to Santa Barbara. As for the producers, they should be on every California Pinotphiles short list. If you have found it difficult to acquire these wines in the past, here is your chance to snap up some of California’s best!
Over the last 20 years Kosta Browne has gone from a tiny two-person operation to cult-like devotion from Pinot fans everywhere. The 2018 growing season was an excellent Pinot vintage up and down the California Coast and Kosta Browne took full advantage, as usual. Their latest releases accentuate energy, elegance, high-toned aromatics and silky texture. They lean decidedly toward a Burgundian model, showing off the ethereal beauty that can result from a cool climate, while still delivering California fruit intensity. Not to be missed!
Every year the release of Sea Smoke causes a bit of a Pinot fueled frenzy at Binny’s, and is certainly among the most allocated and sought-after California Pinots we offer. There couldn’t be a better wine to show off coastal California's potential to create distinctive and distinctly different wines. With full southern exposure, long hangtime and a bold approach to extended maceration and extraction, the wines of Sea Smoke are the flipside of Kosta Browne. The two below are equally capable of wowing experienced Pinotphiles and converting Cab lovers. The 2018 was just released and the professional reviews have yet to roll in, but if you wait for those big numbers, you’ll surely miss out.
