Had the pleasure of recently tasting 8 Kosta Browne wines. Here is another, Wow! Dark fruit aromas with citrus and exotic spices. On the palate plum and black cherry flavors with a creamy texture, gentle oak and savory wild tannins. Aged for 16 months in 46% new French oak. The well balanced wine had a long finish, nice acidity but needs more time to tame the tannins. Tasting Sample.

This Kosta Browne was a solid Pinot. Very fruit driven for a Russian River. This was a 1/2 bottle, decanted a 1.25 hours. It had a wonder nose of black fruit, had a very faint scent of a dark salted Carmel, with a little 5-spice. The palate was more red fruit, with a hint of hint of anise/roasted fennel, it lingered with a shot finish.

One of the better Pinots I've ever had. Delightfully smooth, great nose and it ends exactly when you want it to. Wonderful.
