    Lightly aromatic and supple and graceful on the palate, with a soothing texture and understated plum and raspberry flavors that highlight anise and wilted rose. Drink now through 2022. 703 cases made.

    Purity of fruit is the phrase here. Strawberry and flower. Rose petal. Full body, round and velvety tannins. Soft and juicy. The KB character with tension. Drink or hold.

    The 2015 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard is one of the most overt, flamboyant wines in the lineup. Super-ripe red cherry and plum flavors make a strong first impression. Blood orange and a host of citrus-infused notes add brightness and lift throughout. The intensity of Russian River fruit along with a touch of freshness adds up to a compelling Pinot Noir. Nearly 40% of wine was aged in concrete.

  • 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.
