2009 Kosta Browne - Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard Pinot Noir - USA - California - Sonoma - Russian River Valley - Red

USA - California - Sonoma - Russian River Valley

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.

Issue Issue 156

Bright violet. Perfumed array of red and dark berry and floral qualities, along with notes of allspice and incense. A sexy floral note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Doesn't let up on the finish, which echoes the raspberry note and shows wonderful intensity.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard is gorgeous. Black cherries, menthol, spices, violets wrap around the palate in this sensual, alluring wine. Here the aromas and flavors tend towards the dark, sepia-toned end of the spectrum. The Koplen is layered, complete and totally beautiful. There is an element of gravitas that is particularly appealing. The Koplen was partially vinified in wood uprights, with 18% whole clusters.

Firm, tight and somewhat closed, but with a wealth of flavor built around ripe plum, black cherry and blueberry. Juicy and full-bodied, showing a nice tannic backbone on the finish.

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.
