Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Not the big, over-the-top fruit bomb you get with Kosta Browne, nor the elegant intensity of CIRQ. Much leaner and more austere. Probably what someone with a classically trained Burgundian palate would call the perfect expression of Pinot Noir. Just not in my wheelhouse. @Bill Bender and @DAG probably know exactly what I'm talking about. Addendum: several hours have passed since opening and the wine has improved greatly in literally every respect. The nearly non-existent nose now oozes from the glass. The mid palate shows much more fruit, and most of all, the finish exhibits great reach. This wine benefits greatly from a lengthy decant. Lesson learned. — 3 years ago

Hahaha 😂 @Roman Sukley I suppose you're right. There's Borat but he's a fictional character so that probably doesn't count.

Bright cherry, warm velvety mouth feel. Perfect for late summer grill.

Kosta Browne

Kanzler Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005

05 Kanzler. I'm still coming down from last weekend with @DAG @Bill Bender @Charles Gudas What a great gathering. But this 11 year old Kanzler is ticking off all the right boxes. Menthol (alright @DAG EUCALYPTUS), cherries on the nose, bright fruits on the mid-palate, terrifically long finish. Who says KB can't age? In a beautiful place right now. Kanzler always one of my favorites. I have a vertical going. I'm intrigued with CIRQ. Michael Browne is a talented artist. Already looking forward to the next gathering of the Crew. — 3 years ago

Kosta Browne

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2015

2015 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, 14.3% alcohol. So I greatly prefer the SLH to the Russian River and the Sonoma Coast. Just seems more elegant and creamy to me. More in my wheelhouse. Very floral on the nose with lots of minty cherry on the palate. Finishes with a touch of sassafras. Bright acidity. Lovely really. And while l’m on the topic of Michael Browne, I vaguely remember an announcement on the last CIRQ release that Michael was starting his own “Browne Family” wine. I even remember clicking on a link to sign up. Now, nothing. Did I dream that whole scenario or can any of you wine aficionados help me out? — 10 months ago

@Roman Sukley : I remember the same. Can’t find any evidence in my email or wine notes though.
