This wine oozed of smoky rubber bands and offered little else. The body was light even for pinot, perhaps watery. Minimal fruit and tannic structure. whomever posted this wines price at 59.99 is confused because it reatails for $130 usd. I was unable to stomach more than a glass of this wine, beware.

We opened this to celebrate Barack Obama winning the presidential election, and were not disappointed.

Very Fruity and young. Must be decanted at least an hour if opened before 2009. Once decanted it opens up and is delicious.

Dark red. Vibrant red and dark berry aromas are complemented by baking spices, licorice and musky underbrush. Energetic, sharply defined raspberry and wild strawberry flavors are nicely concentrated but the wine is light in body, with a surprisingly ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Medium red. Intensely perfumed bouquet of spiced cherry, raspberry and blood orange, complicated by smoky minerals and fresh rose. Tangy, sharply focused red berry flavors are medium-bodied and refreshing, picking up a sweeter kirsch note with air. The blood orange quality returns on the long, juicy finish. Sexy and energetic wine-and much more sophisticated than some of this winery's pinot efforts just a few short years ago.

Well-structured, firm and intense, with spicy cola, dried berry, currant, sage, dusty berry, anise, cedary oak and mineral notes. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 556 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch Vineyard 750ml

Bright red color. Ripe red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by clove, mace and cinnamon. Supple and round, with sweet red berry preserve flavors, soft tannins and building ripeness. Maintains admirable clarity on the long, juicy finish, which... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard 750ml
