Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Giusti Ranch 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): A real stand out, the 2013 Pinot Noir Giusti Ranch is the most exciting wine in this range from Kosta Browne. A wild, almost exotic bouquet melds into a core of intense, punchy fruit, all supported by vibrant beams of acidity and tannin. Pomegranate, blood orange, spices and mint explode onto the resonant finish. The interplay of structure and the overt fruit is super-intriguing. At times, a hint of whole clusters comes through, but the 2013 was done with fully destemmed fruit. This is one of the most complete and compelling wines I have tasted from Kosta Browne. Readers who have access to the 2013 should not hesitate, as it is truly superb. Drink: 2015-2022. (May 2015)

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
