    The 2010 Pinot Noir 4 Barrel is one of the more bombastic wines in this lineup. It will appeal most to readers who like exuberant Pinots. Plums, black cherries, mint, licorice and flowers all jump from the glass. Personally, I gravitate towards the subtler wines in the range, but I am sure many readers will love the 4 Barrel. It is classic K-B. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

    (made from a blend of fruit from the Garys', Gap's Crown, Kanzler and Keefer vineyards): Vivid ruby. Smoky Indian spices, dark berries and cherry-cola on the nose. Broad and deep but also precise, offering sweet cherry compote and black raspberry flavors lifted by peppery spices. Tightly focused on the finish, which manages to be both vibrant and powerful. Fine-grained tannins arrive late and add shape and grip to this youthful pinot. (JR)

    Remarkably elegant and delicate, with a supple texture and an open-knit mix of juicy plum and raspberry. Yet for all its subtlety, this firms nicely on the finish, where the tannins are firm and detailed.

  • 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.
