Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

Deep ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed scents of fresh red fruits, incense and candied rose, with a touch of star anise in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a seamless, silky quality. Powerful but lithe pinot with excellent finishing lift and clarity.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Well-built, ripe and layered, with rich plum, wild berry and black cherry fruit that firms nicely midpalate, with touches of herb and cedar. Finishes with a strong medley of berries and tannins. Drink now through 2022. 1,177 cases made.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch Vineyard hits the palate with a blast of dark red cherries, pomegranate, spices, molasses, cloves and plums. The Keefer has a lot of fruit but not as much energy as the rest of the Kosta-Browne Pinots. In my mind, Keefer Ranch has never been a truly great site for Pinot. I would love to be proven wrong, but I just don't see much in the way of distinctiveness here.

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.
