Keefer Ranch is located in the Green Valley appellation in the southwestern corner of the Russian River Valley. The 30 acre vineyard is located on gently rolling hills in an area known to have some of the coolest weather in the Russian River Valley. Morning and evening fog, gentle afternoon breezes, cool overnight temperatures and the warm afternoon sun produce grapes with terrific natural acidity combined with a combination of elegance and intensity. Marcy Keefer grows some of the best Pinot Noir grapes in Sonoma County and we are proud to have them as members of the family. The site has a superb micro-climate, offering just the right amount of warmth during the day and very cool nights, which leads to intensely focused red fruited wine with strong natural acidity. In 2013, Kosta Browne made its first vineyard purchase, acquiring Keefer’s 20 acre K2 block, strengthening its estate program.
AROMATICS: Juicy pomegranate, cranberry, lingonberry, citrus peel and touch of vanilla bean.
ON THE PALATE: Ripe, red cherry and raspberry with notes of sassafras. Medium body with a bright acidity and bursting with rich concentrated flavor. Berries and cream evoke a velvety finish.
