Glass-staining lurid ruby. Fresh red berries and potpourri on the nose, with sexy Asian spice and vanilla notes adding complexity. Lively and precise in the mouth, offering sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors and strong spicy lift. Fine-grained tannins come up late on the finish, which is impressively focused, juicy and extremely long. This is flat-out delicious now.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard emerges from the glass with black cherries, mint, flowers, licorice and tar. It shows plenty of depth and concentration, if not quite the textural finesse of tannin as some of the other 2009s. A soft, lush finish rounds things out. The Kanzler was made with 10-15% whole clusters.

Ripe, rich, plump, concentrated and full-bodied, with a tight mix of mineral, raspberry and spice flavors. Gains a plum and berry pie edge while remaining firm and structured, dense and concentrated.

purely domestic wine report | 96

from the vineyard that started the phenomenal rise of Kosta Browne in 2002. It has an exotic nose jam-packed with aromas of java, clove, violet, tangerine, chocolate, loam, cherry and graphite. In the mouth, the flavors present as exceptionally supple and round impression, chocolate, graphite, and licorice, with delicate cherry and mineral 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.
