    A deep, dense wine, the 2015 Pinot Noir Kanzler offers notable intensity in all of its dimensions. It is an especially pliant, supple Pinot that bridges a stylistic gap between the Russian River and true Sonoma Coast appellations. Bright acids, citrus peel and red-toned fruit fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. The 25% whole clusters are very nicely integrated.

    Complex and defined by a mix of savory black tea, raspberry, sandalwood and light earth notes, gaining tannic strength and richness without losing focus or persistence. Drink now through 2023. 657 cases made.

    Extremely perfumed and floral with so much rose and blueberry and stone. Full body, yet agile and exciting. Salty. It will fill in with age if you give it the chance. What a wine. Try in 2021.

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.
