Kosta Browne Kanzler Vyd. Pinot Noir 2015

Member Review by jkagel:

Explosive bright fruit up front (strawberries and raspberries). Long smooth finish. Feels soft yet vibrant in the mouth. Lots of fun to drink.

Flavorful, intense wines - that is our goal. We believe every wine should be bursting with flavor. This intensity should be part of a greater balance. We find that each of our vineyards has its own "sweet spot" of balance. It is our charge to guide each vineyard to its optimum flavor potential. Our single vineyard wines are blended to express the specific qualities and consistencies of our pedigreed vineyards. Pinot Noir is the perfect palate to define the terroir of these plantings. We offer two appellation wines: our Sonoma Coast and Russian River. These wines are blended to represent the best of our vineyards in each specific appellation. Quality is of utmost importance with these blends. Read less

Enjoyed 2 half bottles at Picco Restaurant in Larkspur (out of full bottles). The first bottle was amazingly smooth, light, complex, not fruity, a superb pinot. Oddly, the second bottle had an initial musty odor, characteristic of an aged italian or french wine; I suspect it was stored in a cold cellar. It was also excellent, but needed to open a little and reach the correct temperature. This is as good as Pinot gets.

Awesome pinot. Full bodied with lots of deep fruit that is just bursting out of the glass. Definitively new world.

Deep and dark with brooding intesity. This is a very full flavored pinot that will open the tired mans eyes and make a baby weep. Big pure dark cherries, milk chocolate, chewy tannins, and an acid level slighty above eye level. A medium weight Oinot with a very long silky finish.

Not as dense as previous vintages, but this wins extra points for its balance and delicacy, with complex mineral, fresh earth, boysenberry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that gains depth and richness without gaining weight.

Ruby-red. Energetic aromas of black raspberry blood orange candied rose and minerals. Vivid impressively focused red and dark berry flavors are complicated by an exotic floral pastille quality. The silky tannins add support and gentle grip to the long subtly sweet finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bold, ripe, expansive and expressive, with layers of spice, black cherry, cola, anise and light toasty oak. Tightly focused, rich and complex, this maintains a beam of fruit and finishes with a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2011. 1,821 ... Wine Spectator.

This wine exibits bold black cherry and blackberry accented with hints of mushroom and cocoa. True to the appellation, the 2005 Sonoma Coast is brimming with dark, deep fruit. Hints of earth and black tea offer depth while juicy plum and blackberry

The initial dusty berry and lead pencil shavings are far richer and fruitier on the palate, while still being very taut, backward, intense and concentrated, with potent wild berry and black cherry fruit that's deep and expansive.

Intense and vibrant, with a tight beam of spicy wild berry and blackberry fruit that's fresh and lively, picking up hints of anise, sage, herb and tea, before returning to the dried cherry fruit theme.
