June 17, 2019 - Paired perfectly with our first copper river king salmon of the season. The wine tasted (and this is a compliment) like a black cherry warhead after the spice wore off.
June 10, 2019 - Overly ripe and almost syrupy dark fruits, without enough supporting structure (especially a lack of acidity to support the fruit). A bit hot as well. Disappointing and poor QPR. Drink soon.
May 25, 2019 - Lasted tasted a year ago almost to the day. This last year has been good for this wine and its freshness is pronounced.
A very nice representation of Sonoma Coast Pinot. Light burgundy color, good clarity and a nose full of ripe red cherry, ceder and oak imparted spices.
May 17, 2019 - Medium weight. Cherry, black cherry, and raspberry. Dependable food wine even if not ethereal.
May 17, 2019 - Nice cherry flavors, smooth from the outset.
May 12, 2019 - Sour cherry and cola. Solid Pinot. Drink now.
April 29, 2019 - Very dark garnet in the glass with some lovely aromas. Bright fruit, but with a silky smooth mouthfeel; the acid is integrated and not jarring at all. Plenty of cherry, black cherry, raspberry on the palate, with a hint of earth to make it interesting. A short-to-medium finish. Overall, this is a solid wine, but it lacked the punch I was expecting given the price tag. Knock this down $20-30 and I think it would show better.
March 15, 2019 - Very good, but prefer the Russian River Valley label.
February 15, 2019 - A very nice and commendable appellation offering from Kosta Browne. Typical Sonoma riot with some earthy notes and ripe, red fruit with red and black cherry notes. Great mouthfeel and it is a nice weight. Probably scoring lower just due to the high expectations of this label, albeit a price point to match those expectations. It is certainly as good as many labels single vineyard offerings. It is pretty fruit forward at this juncture and will improve with some more time in my opinion.
January 15, 2019 - Tart cherries and fresh cranberries. Better than I expected!!
