2010 Kosta Browne - Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir - USA - California - Sonoma - Sonoma Coast - Red

USA - California - Sonoma - Sonoma Coast

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 162

Vivid ruby-red. Sexy, perfumed bouquet displays dark berries, cola, smoky herbs and rose oil. Fleshy, expansive blackberry and bitter cherry flavors deliver a suave blend of richness and energy, picking up a hint of anise with air. Finishes juicy and penetrating, with an array of musky spice qualities and slow-building tannins. This wine deserves some patience.

Drink Dates 2013-2017

The 2010 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is striking in its beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark cherries, cloves and violets seem to jump from the glass. A crystalline, pure Pinot, the 2010 is loaded with energy and brightness. Though medium in body, the 2010 is all about vibrancy and nuance. This is a terrific entry-level Pinot from Kosta-Browne. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017.

Very nice pinot, with lots of upfront chocolate-covered cherries, as well as spicebox. Very good!

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.
