  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Bright, green-tinged gold. Sexy aromas of pear nectar, gingerbread and lavender, along with subtle lees and iodine nuances. Juicy, floral and very precise on the palate, with tangy acidity giving lift and focus to the candied citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Vibrant, aromatic and expansive chardonnay with a persistent, mineral-driven finish. This is about way more than fruit and makes an impressive white wine debut for this pinot specialist.

    Intense and vibrant, with lively pear, nectarine, citrus, peach and mineral notes. Full-bodied, concentrated and persistent, ending with a pleasant burst of fruit.

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.
