($45) Bright red. Spicy cherry and wild strawberry aromas, with dark chocolate and licorice accents. Supple red and dark berry jam flavors show good depth and are accented by cracked pepper and mace. Finishes broad and sweet, with very good length and a refreshingly bitter cherry skin tone.

Graceful and elegant, full-bodied, this offers rich, complex notes of cola, spice and mixed dark berries. Firm, structured tannins mark the finish.

A nose of tarry cherry; smooth and round. The palate has forward and focused dark cherry, licorice and toast.

A very good wine. Decent fruit, balanced. Could actually be cellared a few more years.

The candiness of this wines has mellowed (which I liked). The wine had a nice bright cherry finish that lasted about 30 seconds...enjoyed this wine.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Best of the appellation wines I have had to date. Color: Dark red with purple tones. Nose: Cherry, sassafrass, ripe strawberry, some earth but mostly fruit Palate: Huge bing and black cherry, plummy cola notes, some strawberry rhubarb, silky smooth finish, this is a huge wine, but still is not weighty. Long sweet finish. Not my cup of tea but well made for this style.

About This Producer


Kosta-Browne started its supersonic trek to celebrity status in 1997, when pals Dan Kosta and Michael Browne pooled their restaurant tips and purchased a half ton of Pinot Noir, a manual crusher-de-stemmer and a used barrel. Adding the business and investment-savy Chris Costello gave Kosta Browne the requisite resources to expand into the Pinot force they are today. Fruit is sourced from top-notch vineyards in the Russian River, Sonoma Coast, and Santa Lucia Highlands. Their philosophy is to make Pinots that express intense flavor and the "sweet spot" of their respective vineyards. In addition to their vineyard-designate wines, Kosta Browne also produces two blends: one from the Sonoma Coast and the other from Russian River.
