($52) Bright ruby. Muskier and more brooding than the Sonoma Coast bottling, showing black raspberry, oak spice, cola and dried rose qualities. Round and sappy in the mouth, offering sweet dark fruit flavors and showing no rough edges. Pretty seductive already, with very good finishing cling and an echo of cherry-cola.

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.
