Professional Reviews For This Wine


purely domestic wine report | Rating: 96

from the vineyard that started the phenomenal rise of Kosta Browne in 2002. It has an exotic nose jam-packed with aromas of java, clove, violet, tangerine, chocolate, loam, cherry and graphite. In the mouth, the flavors present as exceptionally supple and round impression, chocolate, graphite, and licorice, with delicate cherry and mineral finish.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Ripe, rich, plump, concentrated and full-bodied, with a tight mix of mineral, raspberry and spice flavors. Gains a plum and berry pie edge while remaining firm and structured, dense and concentrated.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Glass-staining lurid ruby. Fresh red berries and potpourri on the nose, with sexy Asian spice and vanilla notes adding complexity. Lively and precise in the mouth, offering sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors and strong spicy lift. Fine-grained tannins come up late on the finish, which is impressively focused, juicy and extremely long. This is flat-out delicious now.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The 2009 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard emerges from the glass with black cherries, mint, flowers, licorice and tar. It shows plenty of depth and concentration, if not quite the textural finesse of tannin as some of the other 2009s. A soft, lush finish rounds things out. The Kanzler was made with 10-15% whole clusters.

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.
