Red Pinot Noir
Producer Notes

Kosta-Browne started its supersonic trek to celebrity status in 1997, when pals Dan Kosta and Michael Browne pooled their restaurant tips and purchased a half ton of Pinot Noir, a manual crusher-de-stemmer and a used barrel. Adding the business and investment-savy Chris Costello gave Kosta Browne the requisite resources to expand into the Pinot force they are today. Fruit is sourced from... More »

This wine has hit its stride. Chocolate infused cherries, rasberry, with a hint of smoke. Very nice!

Opened and decanted for forty-five minutes. Initial nose of nutmeg spice, cherry cola and old-lady perfume. This wine is tight and well put together, very precise laser lined fruit. This is like an architectural drawing of a California Pinot, all of the amazing creativity of the fruit and spice are expressed in straight forward precise lines that when all put together make an excellent expression of Pinot Noir, the finished product is greater than its parts. The thing about this bottle is that it gives you the same profile from front to back, straight forward, totally balanced, well intentioned wine. Some vanilla notes develop on the nose later in the glass. Compared to the Amber Ridge we had a few nights ago, the Koplen stands heads above; wonderful, wonderful wine. Drinking extremely well right now.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
