Cirq is a relatively new project from famed wine-maker Michael Browne, co-founder of the cult Pinot Noir brand Kosta Browne. Browne’s wines have made the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List several times over the past decade including Wine of the Year 2011.
Inspired by his childhood circus-performing days, our winery ringmaster brings the same intense study, balance, and finesse to CIRQ – superbly blending the highest quality fruit from the Russian River Valley’s prime vineyards. The result is the best Pinot Noir possible through his lens, where uncommon breeding meets unprecedented flavors for the ultimate expression of this magical region.
Aromatics: Freshly picked raspberries, wild strawberries, touches of bright cherry, crunchy red fruits and baking spice. A hint of nutmeg and star anise combined with notes of all spice and a sprinkle of morning rain.
Flavors: Ripe plum, pomegranate and rhubarb-strawberry pie …unbaked with some “razzle- dazzle”. A slight hint of earthy tones and fresh forest floor, softened with a pretty ocean breeze.
