Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Another sensational appellation release is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from an early vintage that was over two weeks ahead of average, it has tons of spice, black raspberry, currants and blackberry characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and no shortage of depth or length. Already impossible to resist, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Like walking through a rose garden, this offers exotic, perfumed scents. Starts out elegant and understated but gains depth and complexity, fanning out with black licorice, dusty earth and dried herb flavors that highlight the zesty raspberry fruit.

Vinous | Rating: 89The 2014 Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands) is plump, juicy and forward, all qualities that are best enjoyed sooner rather than later. The 2014 offers good up-front juiciness, but then loses some persistence through the mid-palate and into the finish. This is a very pretty appellation-level Pinot from Kosta Browne.Author: Antonio Galloni
