Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

Deep red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry, spicecake and white pepper, with building florality. Sappy and sweet, with palate-caressing red and dark berry preserve flavors and good spicy snap. The floral quality repeats on the long, juicy finish, adding an exotic touch. This is already drinking well.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Intense, with charry, toasty, cedary oak notes that fold into ripe plum and wild berry fruit. Full-bodied, spicy and delicate, yet ending with firm tannins and a minerally note.

Obvious sign of the effects of the summer fires in CA in this wine. Despite the smokey flavor, there was still plenty of good fruit underneath. Cherries, chocolate, and red fruits present.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
