(fermented with 25% whole clusters): Vivid ruby. Red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and Asian spices, along with an exotic hint of apricot. Expansive and expressive in the mouth, offering sweet raspberry and cherry-cola flavors enlivened by tangy acidity. The cherry and spice notes linger on the finish with very good tenacity and clarity. This one should reward at least few more years of patience.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard shows the exuberance of this site. Black cherries, flowers, pine, menthol and violets build nicely in the glass as the wine shows off its personality. The aromas and flavors continue to grow in intensity all the way through to an elegant finish layered with persistent saline notes. The Garys' was partially vinified in oak, with 17% whole clusters.

Supple and immediately pleasing, with tasty plum, wild berry and floral scents. Smooth-textured and full-bodied, gaining structure and depth and unfolding in a graceful, supple manner.

purely domestic wine report | 93

Shows a beautiful, vibrant nose of cherry and graphite. The palate has a firm flint entry with a supple roundness leading to the mid-palate where more firm, delineated cherry, blackberry and brown spices slowly merge with each other to form a smooth velvet-like finish.

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.
