2009 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

5/20/2015 - sesalmon Likes this wine: 93 points

Opened about 90 minutes before drinking. Beautiful garnet color that sings in the glass. The first thing that hits you is the nose; expressive aromatics with ripe black cherry, light floral (rose petal?) and clove. A nicely integrated, full-bodied Pinot with complex fruit comprised of cherry cola, raspberry, wild strawberry, brown sugar, spice and a hint of earth. The end just keeps on, lingering for 30 seconds with a cherry note finish. I really liked this wine better than the first bottle.

Very big and ripe. I just don't enjoy this style of pinot anymore and I'm going to sell my remaining bottles of KB.

Popped and poured with a cheese plate of Bre and Gouda. Wine has improved with a few years on it's side. Still fruit forward KB style but slightly calmed down. Lots of cherry up front with a bit of cola and spice added in. Medium finish, decent mouth feel.

Decanted about 1 hour. Definitely went better during dinner than on its own. Very nice KB Pinot but nothing special. I don't feel holding any longer is warranted. This one is ready and I haven't seen any improvement over the past year.

This is the best wine I have had so far in 2015! Deep dark red full body wine with a super nose. Once you open the bottle the fruit offers an excellent pinot. Big complex fruit with blackberries and a hint of blueberries. Wonderful finish. Truly a memorable bottle of wine.

This was money!

Slow o'd for 30 minutes and it was rocking! My experience mirrored Laube's...rich blueberry and plum notes with hints of spices leading to a full tasty palate. A great pinot!

Opened about an hour before drinking. Garnet color. Full, round, smooth pinot flavor. Drinking excellently right now.

Aromas of pineapple, butterscotch, flint and papaya. This is heavy in the mouth with flavors of pineapple, vanilla, smoke, papaya and banana. Classic Zio Tony characteristics. Av got quite nicely. Too bad no more.

Almost made me regret dropping off the KB list. Simply out of my league as I near retirement. Distinct, prominent cherry on the nose. Beautiful on the palate, a mind-messing delicate and full bodied palate. Not overly extracted like some KBs. Last bottle of the SLC and will miss it.

Quite a transition from a heavy dark wine with overtones of brown sugar, molasses and bark to a slightly more delicate one drive by plummy fruit. While not very complex, the balance was much improved and the flavor delicious.

Wow. Drank this along side a 2010 Dumol Russian River. Bioth were excellent however, the KB was so much more complex, with more layers of flavors, enought acid, and a nose that was typical of what KB does. Served with rack of lamb (mustard glaze and panko oven crisped). Decanted each bottle a couple of hours before serving. Doesn't get any better than this.

A gorgeous wine and fine example of the style of Pinot Noir that Kosta Browne is famous for. The 2010 is a ripe and full Pinot but with great dark berry fruit followed by spice and an insanely long, clean finish. Drinking beautifully now.

A very well made PN in a California style. Definitely more on the fruit forward side, but in an elegent way. Decanted 2+ hours and still evolving towards a better place. Bright red fruit of ripe cherries, mascerated strawberries and raisens. The mid-palate is not as developed as some of our more favorite Pinots. Has a nice acidity level and a medium finish.

My notes are consistent with my previous bottle. This is a luscious, beautiful pinot noir that is just entering its ideal drinking window. It is perfect now, and I expect it will still be wonderful several years from now. This is pinot not mean to be analyzed, studied and dissected. It is pinot meant to be shared and enjoyed with old and special friends. On a side note, fwiw, this particular bottling has charmed people. On separate occasions, I have had people, who love wine but are not necessarily connoisseurs, tell me that this best wine they have ever had. I've never had that response from any other pinot, or any other vintage of KB for that matter.

Good wine but had higher expectations for this. Fruit was somewhat muted compared to typical KB. Finish was slightly dry.
