Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89(+?)

Glass-staining ruby. The most brooding of the K-B stable, displaying smoky cherry and blackberry and black cardamom on the nose. Juicy, spice-accented dark fruit flavors are framed by supple tannins and complicated by mocha and smoky Indian spices. Livelier on the finish, which leaves a musky herbal quality behind.

The other wine I was able to guess. This shows a distinct herbal edge in this tasting, offering a subtler, subdued presence, with complex dark berry, herb and tea notes.

Drank too young. Nice nose of sweet cherries and smoke that only partially translated to the palate, which was a bit thin compared with other KB pinots I've had.

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.
