I dont usually like california pinots but with that said this was great. Ripe strawberries, rasberries, cherries, with notes of spice. Great body and sweet tannins. The best of the best from CA

Kosta Browne never disappoints. This is one of my favorite Pinot Noirs and I love my Pinot. I'm no expert but I love their Pinots and I pick as many bottles as I can every year. You have to get on their waiting list to get these exclusive, incredible wines.

96 points. excellent concentration of very fresh red fruit, not sour or acidic or tannic at all, but not lacking because the fruit is so pure and lovely. we made a video tasting for this wine at wineweirdos.com

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Varietally atypical touches of mint lend a different twist to this very rich, lavishly oaked Pinot, but beneath all of its sweet spice lies a wealth of very pure and impressively concentrated ripe-cherry fruit that takes center stage early and powers past a slight catch of heat at the finish. There is so much to like now that we question what might come with keeping, but even if improvement is not in its cards, the wine will hold well for a half-dozen years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. If on the one hand leaning a bit more to ripeness than some in its clan, this big and very outgoing wine is not one for excess, and its abundant, mildly chocolaty, sweet-cherry fruit is matched by a fine sense of structure with ample acidity and balanced tannins providing a fine spine. Its very long fruity finish may take on a slight pucker, but this bottling ranks with the more ageworthy Pinots of the Kosta Browne lot, and it has a most promising future.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Rating: 94/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. This stunning wine reaffirms our belief that Kosta Browne manages to capture as much pure and precise Pinot Noir fruit as any producer we know, and it does so while showing a great deal of polish. It is ripe but never overly so, and it is structured without being stiff. Its keen balance and slightly velvety feel are the signature traits of thoughtfully made Pinot, and its wonderful sense of depth earns it a place with the very best of the 2008 class.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. When we think of Pinot Noirs from the Pisoni Vineyard, high ripeness and extract are what comes to mind, but here we find a wine that, while not at all lacking in fruity muscle, shows just a little more structure and winemaking polish than is usually the case. Its combination of ripe cherries and raspberries comes with a trim of dried violets and just the right note of oak, and its deep, very accessible flavors hold on through a lengthy, low-tannin finish that is lifted and firmed by seamlessly fit acidity. It will take to age well even if age is not really required.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
