Winemaker Tasting Notes: Nose: Expressive red apple, raspberry, and pomegranate aromas excite alongside soft notes of lavender and spice. Mouth: Lively texture, with a medium body and refined finish. Pristine.
"A vibrant, pure, and precise style of Pinot Noir from this region, the 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley sports a vivid ruby hue as well as a beautiful array of redcurrants, wildflowers, sappy underbrush, and subtle baking spice nuances. Gorgeous on the palate as well, it's medium to full-bodied and has a pure, focused textured, silky tannins, and a great finish. Where most Russian River Pinot Noirs are broad and exuberant, this plays it closer to its vest and has an undeniably Burgundian style, with good acidity, tannins, and precision. It's beautifully done and will evolve for 15+ years or more."- Jeb Dunnuck
"A perfumed, dried-floral nose of rose petals and violets with ripe red cherries as well. Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins. Cool profile on the palate with very vibrant and lush red and black fruit. A lick of sweet fruit mixes with savory, earthy notes at the finish. Good depth and intensity. Drink or hold."- James Suckling
"The 2019 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir offers attractive and lasting textures on the palate. This wine brings aromas and flavors of savory spices, sandalwood, black fruit, and oak to the fore. Enjoy it with an oven-roasted turkey topped with strips of bacon."- Wilfred Wong
"There's good grip to the dark cherry and plum paste flavors that feature savory and dark chocolate accents, with a creamy texture on the firmly tannic finish, showing tapenade hints. Drink now through 2026."- Wine Spectator
