    May 12, 2017 - Spring flowers adorned our table, and were a perfect metaphor for this lovely wine. Cherry blossoms, orange flower, a nice balance and soft finish made this wine a perfect representation of the season.

    April 21, 2017 - Even at age 8 the fruit and flavor profile you expect from Kosta Brown is all there. Everything is well balanced. Took to a dinner party, group favorite, was tremendous with the grilled salmon.

    February 11, 2017 - Not what I expected. Light in body and elegant in taste. Archetypical Kosta Browne cherry cola flavors with some complexity, but ultimately more on the simple side. Probably caught at it's peak, but definitely not worth the cost.

    October 7, 2016 - Disappointed. At first taste I hoped it was something special. The initial cedar and earthiness was enticing. But …. It quickly subsided and became a distant memory. What was that again? Flaccid, sad and indistinguishable.

    August 28, 2016 - The wine is at a great spot right now and drinking very well while maintaining its fruit.
