Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2012
92 points California Grapevine: Medium-light to medium ruby color; attractive, forward, deep, spicy, raspberry and Bing cherry fruit aroma with hints of cinnamon and cocoa; medium-full body; rich, intense, textured, red and black fruit flavors that have good depth and structure; medium to medium-full tannin; a bit rough on the finish; lingering aftertaste. Developed some complexity with airing, though still needs a few more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended. 14.5% alcohol; released March 2014. (Apr 2014)
I have been fortunate to receive an allocation of Kosta Browne wines for the last 4 years, after about 3 years on their waiting list. Since 2006 (my first) both the Sonoma Coast and Russian River applellations have been my favorite wines. This is the kind of wine that you save for those special occasions and life moments that you want to frame by sharing a GREAT bottle of wine. It's memorable with amazing cherry, spice, pepper - with complimenting tannins that speak to its ability to age. I love this full bodied style of Pinot.
Spicy yet smooth. This has character. Good crossover for those liking complex shiraz or cabs.
The winery recommended you wait until 2010 before drinking, but I could not resist. One sip and I was in love. The cherry and baking spice flavors really stood out to me. It was beautifully balanced and had a very long finish. I was sharing this with my sister. Her husband was coming over soon and we opened another Pinot so we would not have to give him any. What can I say. I wanted it all to myself.
bright fruit, light, good balance; nice esp for the price.
