Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Zeros in on a tight core of vivid dark berry, with touches of wild berry, raspberry and blueberry shaded by creamy oak. Gains velocity and depth, ending with a long, persistent finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

Opaque ruby. Highly expressive aromas of ripe red and dark berries, cola and rose oil. Vibrant and precise, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of allspice. Closes with strong cut, gentle tannins and a late note of candied flowers. Very sexy already but I'd let this one rest for a few more years.

Black fruits and a hint of mustiness precede a rich Burgundian palate with a smooth long finish.

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.
