I fell in love with the Paul Lato Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir that we drank during lunch. I had never had Paul’s wines and they were incredible!World-of-Pinot-Noir-Kosta-Brown-Lunch

This is the line up of Pinot Noirs we tasted led by each winemaker. The Gap’s Crown Vineyard were my favorites. Such interesting aromatics, flavors, and very complex.
