    Coming from the Russian River Valley, the 88-case 2014 Pinot Noir Cohn Vineyard offers a medium-bodied, savory and mineral-laced style as well as lots of white pepper, strawberry, spice and assorted red fruits. Elegant, lightly textured, graceful and with fine tannin, it will cruise in the cellar through 2024+. The cuvee saw 43% new French oak.

    Once again, the Pinot Noir Cohn Vineyard is one of the most unique wines in the range. Exotic and totally alluring in its aromatics, the Cohn has a wildness to it that I find compelling. A host of blood orange, rose petal and sweet red cherry notes soar from the glass in a lift, aromatically intense Pinot loaded with personality. This is an eccentric style for the Russian River, but it all works nicely. Kosta Browne has a long association with Cohn, as it was the source of the first KB Pinot.

    Rustic and edgy, with extracted, firmly tannic wild berry, cherry and earth-scented plum and blueberry flavors. Slow to unfold, but impressive overall. Drink now through 2022. 88 cases made.

  • 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.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
